Review: Nature of Nature at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia 

By Geordie Miller 

Amongst the many photographs included in Nature of Nature - the latest retrospective exhibition of Thaddeus Holownia - its most recent inclusion  has prompted  the strongest response. 

Titled Icarus, Falling of Birds   (2016), eight staggered columns depict rows of 200 deceased creatures, all having succumbed to a New Brunswick natural gas flare in 2013. 

Nature of Nature runs from February 4 through May 28, 2017 at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
