This exhibition, curated by artist Victoria Lucas, is centred around JMW Turner’s painting The Festival of the Opening of the Vintage at Mâcon.
PostNatures draws on the constructed composition of Turner’s painting to highlight how imaginary subjects can affect our individual or cultural perceptions of reality. The exhibition features a range of artworks and objects from Sheffield’s collections which depict other representations of the relationship between women and nature, alongside recent works from the Heavy Water Collective, which comprises Maud Haya-Baviera, Joanna Whittle and Victoria Lucas. Together, they invite us to rethink and further explore ideas of the feminine in nature.
The exhibition is generously supported by the Ampersand Foundation.
