Canadian embroidery artist Amanda McCavour reimagines the Toronto Botanical Garden’s soaring second-floor mezzanine as a field of floating flowers, blending fantasy and document, imagination, and observation. The installation shifts the perspective of a traditional prairie, inviting viewers to walk underneath—rather than through—a floating field of flowers.
