The title, “A Greenhouse. Evening” is a description setting the scene for Fenwick’s solo exhibition at Plug In ICA, which is both elaborate installation and improvisational performance.
Fenwick’s “greenhouse” is a self-contained structure positioned in the “evening” - a dimly lit room. This staged scenario is set for visitors to enter and engage with a series of actions and the potential for conversation. What defines a conversation is part of Fenwick’s subject, which he stretches to absurd ends within A Greenhouse. Evening to the point that the walls might speak and the plants will understand what you’re saying and grow.
Opening reception, Thursday, April 13 | 8:00 - 11:00 PM
