Celebrating honey-slow making processes: object focus on handmade laborious, thematic focus on evoking empowered physical joy through flora/fauna, losing anthropocentricity through commune with nature via high-fives to abjection. Idyllic slow fermenting and fomenting of time as definitions of beauty in abjection. This exhibition is inspired by bees (honey), as well as a print that Dorothy Iannone gifted Dalton called Flora and Fauna. So there is a bit of tribute exhibition embedded in it, to Anthophila Apoidea and Dorothy Iannone, in equal combination. Call to artists to make something slow and tiny, in conversation with flora/fauna. Or else, borrow something slow and tiny, with flora/fauna influence.
