Empathy for People, Empathy for Things

UH Arts + Culture are delighted to present Empathy for People, Empathy for Things – a group exhibition exploring an important issue of our time – empathy – and what that might mean for how we relate with each other and connect to the things around us.

Feral Practice presents Would Circle - a new sculptural installation of the sound art work Mycorrhizal Meditation, which choreographs a connective journey through the human body and down into a dynamic, semiotic underworld of living soil and mycorrhizal mycelium. The installation brings natural wood and plant forms, scientific equipment and craft materials together to create a hanging sculpture and seating structure. The piece also features delicate, vessel-like sculptures containing plant and fungal material by artist Matt Gale.
