Laura St.Pierre: AutoPark

July 23, 2010 - November 6, 2010

AutoPark is a portable garden of defunct vehicles that have been converted into large-scale terrariums. Cars, vans, trucks and SUVs house communities of native plants, re-inserting the wilderness into contrived urban landscapes. Riffing off of the history of the enclosed growing space, the artist investigates our evolving relationship to the natural and the man-made worlds, proposing that we find new ways to inhabit both.

View a 3:31 minute video by the Edmonton Journal to hear the artist speak about the exhibition of AutoPark during the 2010 The Works Art & Design Festival in Edmonton, Alberta.  Watch the video.  Learn more about The Works Art & Design Festival.

A temporary installation of AutoPark will be on view in Grande Prairie at the Street Performers Festival July 23 – 25, 2010 and will continue through the summer and fall at the the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie/Montrose Cultural Centre location.
