There are many surprises – including artist Lizzy Simpson’s you shares me shares… everything...an immersive cross-media installation sourced from the many environments within which the artist lives and travels, from culture and nature, working together to manifest interconnections between human and non-human.

Using materials such as compost and exhibiting living things, Lizzy presents a tale of constant mutability. While attending to the care of this installation, she shares food and welcomes conversation. Many wondrous things are presented in this installation and prompt stories of our enmeshed, often distanced, relationship with the things with which we coexist.

Lizzy explains: “During a recent residency in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, I was witness to Jogja’s many collective groups. Through art, science, education, and the growing, making and distribution of food, these collectives sought alternative narratives with which to grapple with rapid worldwide changes. They concentrated on working toward more positive outcomes for their local and global environments. This residency experience was instrumental in the continuing development of this work.”
