Description

Shilin Hora is a multidisciplinary American-Canadian visual artist and educator based in the Chicagoland area. She pokes, prods, bends, dissects, harvests and sorts materials found in the natural environment in order to build unique artwork. Hora was born in St. Joseph, Michigan, studied at Grand Valley State University (BFA 2002) and has held positions at Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Through installation, prints and sculpture, Hora explores ideas about our relationship to place and the natural environment. In Seed Museums, she presents some of her most recent sculptural work, inspired by natural history museum displays and 19th century Wardian cases used by botanists to import foreign plant species to Europe. Seeds are dried, arranged, and placed behind Plexiglas, emphasizing their unique inherent qualities. Hora has strict commitments to sustainability, utilizing repurposed and sustainable materials to house seed collections, becoming part of a larger ecological narrative.

Seed Museums: Viewing and Using Nature by Shilin Hora will be on display at the West Wall Gallery until March 1, 2019.  More information you should know!
