Dec 2: Sarah Ryan and Anna McMahon
The floral gift: in search for the meaningful

In ‘The floral gift: in search for the meaningful’ Sarah Ryan and Anna McMahon use the lost language of flowers to create a dinner setting and experience where participants are asked to seek and interpret new and old forms of meaningful expression. You’re invited to join the artists for an exotic pineapple soup and good conversation in their quest for the meaningful.
Sarah Ryan and Anna McMahon are both visiting artists from Australia.
