Vault: Exchange 2019
Housed within a vault-like structure positioned in the Great Hall of the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Canada, Vault: Exchange presents 5,000 x-ray images of seeds- the number of seeds needed to preserve a species.
Prompting active participation during three seed exchange events, visitors are invited to help build a living seed bank onsite. By removing one artwork from the vault’s walls and replacing it with a glassine envelope filled with a single Canadian seed, they will exchange their addition to the seed bank for a gift of one of Doherty’s x-ray photographs from the vault’s walls.
Over the duration of the exhibition from April until August of 2019, the structure will change physically and visually, from representational to actual, and from dark to light.
The installation encourages viewers to examine their responsibility as global citizens while reflecting on the monumental effort required to preserve botanical biodiversity. It also highlights the environmental and political instabilities that instigated the collaborative scientific effort to generate a backup system for Earth’s fragile botanical life.
Doherty’s imagery is informed by her long-term project Archiving Eden.
