We’re Solarpunk because the only other options are denial or despair.
This autumn our Rotary Courtyard gallery will be taken over by two exciting, young, local artists—Lucas and Mat Glenn. Creative Growth Centre for Spiritual Nourishment will be a site specific installation that will invite visitors to enter a living / working space that is self-contained and aims to sustain human life as an ‘eco-utopian’ space. Visitors are welcome to enter the room, sit, work and play—using the space as they would a scaled-down, shared co-operative work space. The artwork references the dreams of startup and DIY (do it yourself) culture and questions the actual sustainability of such ideas.
Lucas and Mat Glenn are BFA graduates from UBC Okanagan and Kelowna-based interdisciplinary artists. Their sculptural, digital, and site-specific works use regional identity, science-fiction, and fantasy to address global crises.
