Our surroundings are integral facets in the makeup of identity. Living spaces become curations of personality that simultaneously hold and comfort their creator. Just as one can cultivate a garden to ensure healthy and abundant growth, it is equally valuable to apply that same approach to the places where we spend most of our time. Cultivate explores this relationship between self and space by reimagining domestic objects as expressions and outcomes of human experience. Within the exhibition the viewer is confronted with objects often seen as intimate and personal. To be invited into someone’s environment gives us the chance to understand and relate to the nuances of their lives.
