In Virginia Warwick’s irreverent performances and undersea installation, native natural inhabitants on the edge of extinction must contend with humans, human behavior and kitsch. For her solo exhibition, Warwick creates an undersea baby nursery for her fictional character, Olivia the Sea Turtle, who continues her adventures navigating between the worlds of humans and non-humans.
