Marianne Boesky Gallery, 2009

Began June 19, 2009—August 14, 2009

The exhibition Excerpts from the Planet Thear happened on an outdoor rooftop garden and in the gallery’s project space below. The rooftop installation was conceived as the “landing site” for a science fiction character I created in 2002 named Jill Poet. Industrial materials such as silicone, recycled glass, acrylics, and rubber roofing membranes formed all the organically shaped vessels and garden materials. A combination of my hand-blown Dome Terrariums and Giant Terrariums filled the interior gallery floor combining living plants, rocks, minerals, and gems.
