Artist Talk: Garden of Liminal Bodies

Garden of Liminal Bodies, a duo exhibition by 2023-24 HATCH Residents Molly Blumberg and Vince Phan, curated by Christian Gonzalez Ho.

Garden of Liminal Bodies featuring Molly Blumberg and Vince Phan invokes gardens from the Japanese roji to the Islamic gardens of Madinat al-Zahra to Heironymous Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights. Blooming, budding, fruiting and dying, the bodies in a garden, like the human body, are constantly changing; within the space of the garden, we are drawn into their liminal state of flux.
