Plants & other insurance policies

Crystal Bradford & Liam Kijewski

February 19 - March 10, 2021

As we move towards a future with less certainty, who and what will save us and help us get back in touch with who we used to be...(before the disaster)? Plants and Other Insurance Policies explores the various ways humans try to protect themselves and secure a thriving future, while at the same time living a 'crash and burn' existence. Bradford and Kijewski have been creating magical little worlds to bring joy for over a decade. This show will depict how in real life sometimes our worlds fall apart.
