Furari Flores

University of Southern Queensland Art Gallery

 

Furari Flores is a multisensory arts experience celebrating the wonder of plants. Enter a world of botanical magic and join artist, Cara-Ann Simpson, on a journey of deep listening, Earth admiration and plant love. Incorporating sight, smell, hearing, and tactility, this project creates an immersive, sensory experience.

Furari Flores grew out of Cara-Ann Simpson’s experience with extreme illness and a life-changing diagnosis. The Latin title translates to ‘stealing flowers’, which is a literal and metaphorical interpretation of the project and her story. It also references the continued use of a ‘dead’ language in medical and botanical taxonomies. This series is Simpson’s journey of living with disability, explored as a relationship with plants and places, and a rediscovery of identity. Broadly, this exhibit is an open conversation about connections through sensory immersion, active observation, and deep listening.
