Finding what Grows is an audio tour that calls for remembering and learning from a garden artwork originally planted at Gage Park by the late Mi’kmaw artist Mike MacDonald.

Butterfly Reservation (2000) was planted in Gage Park for the public art exhibition Zone 6b: Art in the Environment (2000). Guiding listeners around the park, this audio walk invites you to consider the relationships and interconnection between land, humans, pollinators, and plants, always conscious of nearby extractive and refinement industries. Finding what Grows encourages collective remembering and learning about the presence of plants, how they adapt and also how they intervene.

This work was developed as part of enawendewin/relationships, an exhibition curated by William Kingfisher at the McMaster Museum of Art in 2021.
