ONExchange | Nicola Moss and Diana Warnes In Conversation
Greenspace is the inaugural exhibition for Onespace by artist Nicola Moss. Moss brings her City and Nature project to the gallery, examining a changing ecology – a place where town planning, heritage and personal aesthetic, mixes with maintenance regimes and sense of well-being. Greenspace explores the inner-city Brisbane suburbs of postcode 4101 – South Brisbane, West End and Highgate Hill.
Moss’ art practice explores the value of a healthy environment to communities and individuals, with a particular focus on the sense of well-being contact with plants can provide in our everyday lives.
“I take paper with me when I go – it’s an opportunity to actually get impressions of the place… It looked like there was quite a lot of greenspace in 4101 – a lot of it is private gardens combined with street trees, it’s this collective greenspace. It requires participation and I think we all add to that greenspace.” – Nicola Moss, ONExchange Conversation
Diana Warnes hosted a ONExchange conversation with Nicola Moss on Saturday February 2 where they discussed her exhibition, processes and observations travelling through 4101 during the making of this spectacular body of work. Listen to the full discussion below:
