Kim Schoenberger, Papillon, In the Light of Truth 2016, recycled tea bags. Photography by Tony Webdale and courtesy of the artist.
From the broad oeuvre of Schoenberger’s acclaimed work comes the exciting display of Papillon. A sea of butterflies suspended from the ceiling of the gallery creates a kinetic sculpture, counterpointed by a specimen wall in the adjoining room where hundreds of butterflies printed with abstract imagery are pinned for closer observation. Exploring concepts of transformation, each butterfly is created from used tea bags sourced from the community, while the title (French for butterfly) reminds us that this work invokes a new language.
