Papillon

From the oeuvre of Schoenberger’s acclaimed works comes her new exhibition Papillon

A sea of two thousand butterflies suspended from the roof of the gallery foyer creates a kinetic sculpture, counterpointed by a specimen wall where thousands of butterflies printed with abstract imagery are pinned for closer observation.

Exploring concepts of transformation, each butterfly is created from used tea bags sourced from the community, while the title (French for butterfly) reminds us that this work invokes a new language.
