At the core of "Nature is a Cyborg" are five interactive eco-morphic characters, each endowed with unique healing powers and a mesmeric voice created from nature itself by sound artist Shane Mendosa. These sculptures exist in a dichotomy, blending natural and synthetic elements to provoke reflection and humour. Materials, incorporate found plant pods, ostrich quills, and wasp hive casings.

Luciferina, inspired by the glow of fireflies, utilises photosynthesis to emit healing light

Officina, a 'hermaphroditic sensual being,' exudes a calming aura of healing

Mucro, with its juxtaposed organic and sharp elements, symbolises purification

Cacturon, towering and vibrant, serves to repair with its plant-like features

RooIT embodies resilience and renewal, emitting a nutritious fluid while producing soothing sounds.

Drawing inspiration from Donna Haraway's "A Cyborg Manifesto," Trevorah's characters blur the boundaries between human and non-human, organic and synthetic. They embody a vision of resistance and transformation, challenging established notions of power and agency in the natural world. "Predator 2," a prominent sculpture in Trevorah's universe, further explores these ideas with its cyborg aesthetic. Through its enigmatic form, it confronts human supremacy and encourages viewers to reimagine their relationship with nature.

ANANAS

A site-specific sculpture for Fulham Palace and funded by Arts Council England, ANANAS, a striking 3-meter upside-down pineapple sculpture, comprises six stainless steel pineapple halves radiating from a central hexagonal column. While the colours shift from gold to green in the upper fruit section, the blue leaves reference the coat of arms of Bishop Blomfield, who originally designed the garden in the 1830s. Providing inspiration for the artist, the gardens feature a rare to the UK Pinery-Vinery (Pineapple and grape greenhouse) built by Bishop Howley and re-modelled in 2012.


The pineapple, a symbol of power and wealth, made its debut in the UK in 1668 and became synonymous with lavish dining tables during the Georgian era. However, its cultivation was challenging and costly, reflecting its value as high as £60 (equivalent to roughly £5,000 today). An object of pride and envy the pineapple was also an emblem of colonialism, weighted with connections to plantation slavery. Despite this, it has evolved to symbolise hospitality, friendship and openness.

Symbiosis

Looking at our immersion within a dynamic world, Symbiosis is a collection of works that celebrates human–plant interconnectivity.

Captivating viewers with an internal landscape reminiscent of a magical forest, Trevorah weaves and merges linked evolutionary, reproductive processes and intra-dependence between the two biospheres, with an abundance of imagination and meticulousness.
