Fox Creek Wines: Avant Garden Fox Creek Installation

Guildhouse is proud to present a public art commission from Fox Creek Wines as part of Avant Garden at the Garden of Unearthly Delights in the 2019 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

This opportunity has engaged me to look at the strengths and experiences and validate all the hard work, learning and experience I have gained over the last 15 years. Whilst my practice may seem varied in some cases, the core of it is an expanded approach with an ethics and inclusivity at the heart.

Laura Wills,

LimberUp Mentor, 2018.

With the support of Guildhouse and the Museum of Economic Botany I was given the freedom to pursue independent research and the valuable opportunity to connect with professional staff and passionate volunteers across a range of disciplines, enriching the narrative of my work.
