terra incognita
Künstlerhaus Göttingen
Göttingen, Germany.
14th January — 14th February 2016

Bark, blossoms, branches, fruits, leaves, grasses, mosses, seeds, transmute year after year, being compressed and composted — accumulating slowly layer upon layer, over periods of thousands upon thousands of years. All part and parcel of natural processes — all very ordinary really.

Even so, Sheehan’s deductions are interwoven with ambiguity, curiosity, and mixed with an equally large portion of fascination and respect.

An artist’s talk with Gregory Seán Sheehan takes place at 16:00 on Sunday 14th of February. Moderation: Erhart Schröter, Künstlerhaus Göttingen.
