Current exhibition: MOVING PLANTS
Plants move, they move other things, they move people, and they are themselves being moved around. We often treat plants as a mere backdrop for human activity and existence – yet, as we become still more acutely aware of the dire ecological state of our planet, artists and scholars across the world are increasingly insisting that plants are amongst our most important earthly co-inhabitants if we are to thrive and survive in a climatically changing world. Moving Plants brings together artists from East Asia and Europe centrally invested in plants and plant-related matters.
