vision

To provide a suburban garden venue for emerging and established artists, while engaging and co-curating with the garden keeper in an ongoing, buildable way of exhibition. To explore the concept of slow institutions through maintenance, care, understanding, and negotiation of space.

 

about

gnome is an artist-borrowed garden located in Surrey, on the unceded Territories of the Semiahmoo, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Qayqayt, and Tsawwassen First Nations. This is an ongoing, collaborative project space located in Uncle's garden. Through multiple layers of translation, gnome works towards an evolving and dynamic exchange between the garden, the gardener, the visitors, the family, and the artists. It was first conceived by Qian Cheng, Mitchell Kenworthy, Kiyoshi Whitely, Liam Johnstone, Marika Vandekraats, and Uncle.

Organized by Qian Cheng.
