The opening night of the 'Naturophilia' exhibition featured the work of Martin King and Peter Sharp at LAB 14, (the site of the former Royal Women's Hospital) at The University of Melbourne in Carlton with a live performance of 'A Wayward Zephyr' by Sam Colcheedas.
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.
