Gardner's work is included in the exhibition titled A New Region of the World which opens at Bunkier Sztuki's Gallery of Contemporary Art in Krakow on 8th September, and runs until 12th November, 2017.
In the exhibition promotion, the curators Anna Bargiel and Olga Stanisławska ask: How do we face a traumatic past head-on? Is it by uncovering the genealogy of violence, or rehabilitating the memory of those pushed out of the mainstream narrative, or digging up the marginalized narratives of resistance? How do we address past wrongs? The artists taking part in this exhibition address similar questions; they come from Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, and North and South America – geographic regions associated with the diaspora history of the “Black Atlantic”.
