Public Studio plants tree saplings on York University campus
As a culminating event to our recent solo exhibition What We Lose In Metrics at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Public Studio, along with Emelie Chhangur, Philip Monk and Michael Miranda, and more of the AGYU spent a hot day in August planting the tree seedlings that had been fed by a 10ft by 20ft LED sign installed in the gallery for the duration of the three-month exhibition on York University’s campus. These trees, all species involved in Ontario botanist Diana Beresford-Kroeger’s Bio-Plan, will grow into a sustainable and local forest on campus for years to come. See photos from the planting below!
