This Will Be for Thousands of Years

Barry Art Museum

Sunday, Jan 1, 2023 at 5:00 PM (ET)

May 1, 2022 - January 1, 2023

In an intimate pop-up exhibition titled “This will be for thousands of years,” Heather Beardsley presents work from her series “Strange Plants”, inspired by a trip to Chernobyl, where she witnessed nature’s reclamation of the abandoned and toxic site.

Vintage photos and postcards from Eastern Europe are hand-embroidered with increasingly wild foliage, often forgoing or engulfing any humans populating the images. “There is an inherent tension in these pierced and stitched works on paper, especially as we consider whether any of the images from Ukraine still exist today, and what might be destroyed next,” said Guest Curator Brett Day Windham.
