Whimsy Farms has joined forces with Pavel Liška, a prominent Czech multimedia artist and producer known as Lishown, to present a captivating series of works for Fall 2023. At the BLIK BLIK light festival, Pavel unveiled his site-specific installation CerebriTree, which masterfully explores the interconnection between man, nature, and technology. For the Hangar, Pavel created another site-specific installation, Earth: Found and Lost, featuring a series of canvas paintings that will gradually disintegrate into the land over the course of the season, resulting in a dynamic and ever-changing piece of art.
