The Warehouse Gallery is pleased to present two exhibitions: Networked Nature, organized by Rhizome Curator Marisa Olson at The Warehouse Gallery in Syracuse, New York, through July 17, and Faux Naturel, curated by Warehouse Gallery Director Astria Suparak at the Foreman Art Gallery in Sherbrooke, Quebec, opening July 7.
Networked Nature
Networked Nature is a group exhibition that inventively explores the meaning and representation of “nature,” from the perspective of networked culture. The featured works employ various scientific processes and locative media, such as global positioning systems (GPS) and robotics, and take the form of installations, video and sound art. Together, they make new contributions to the discourses of extant genres, such as sculpture, earth works and landscape imagery, while also demonstrating the scientific beauty and complexity of electronic and digital art. This exhibition premiered at Foxy Production in New York City and was expanded for The Warehouse Gallery in Syracuse, with additional works by C5 Corporation and Huang, who is included in the Taiwan Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale.
Faux Naturel

The group of North American artists presented in Faux Naturel is young enough to have grown up with a more informed sense about the environment, with Earth Day pre-printed on calendars and global warming existing as more than just a theory. These artists explore the territory delineated by the destruction of the natural world, with all its attendant themes: entropy, redemption, apocalypse, the fall from grace, the temptations of commercial culture, and the relationship between science and magic. There is an authenticity in these artists’ practices, stripped of trendy cynicism. Many of the works draw from personal stories–sublimations of painful experiences reclaimed and reshaped into something beautiful and heartfelt, with the power to transform. This exhibition premiered at The Warehouse Gallery in Syracuse in fall 2006.
