Award-winning Vancouver artist Mia Weinberg, who created the pyramid sculpture at the entrance to the Muttart Conservatory, returns with “In the Land of Sleep”, a show of cameraless photography at the Conservatory, from April 7th to May 13th.


Weinberg uses a scanner to capture the source images for her digital photograms, creating art that calls attention to the tiniest fragments of organic matter. The images recall the sense of discovery and wonder of the world seen through a microscope, in the delicate details that reside in the groves and gardens, and in architecture. Weinberg often chooses to work with botanical specimens in the process of decay because their passage through death shows an extraordinary beauty which leads to regeneration and new beginnings.

All the images for In the Land of Dreams are from hydrangea flowers in various stages of decay.

Admission to the show is included with Conservatory admission
