Supported by The Carlton Connect Initiative, 'Naturophilia' explores the contrast and cohabitation of city life, urbanisation and the natural environment. Curated by Renee Beale, the exhibition is multisensory and features wood-based sculptures and multimedia artworks, including a 3D experience and 'A wayward zephyr' composed by Sam Colcheedas for piano.
