Turbulence, Conflict and the Garden of Remediation

Exhibition and Shows

12 Oct 2019 to 3 Nov 2019

Within the perspective of a century of unrest, this exhibition and associated symposium explore the ways in which gardens and plants have unexpected relationships with times of turbulence. Gardens have offered refuge as places of rehabilitation and healing. The plants growing within have figured as talismans of home, as medicines and, now, as harbingers of conflict-driven climate change. Created by Lyndell Brown, Charles Green, Paul Gough and Jon Cattapan, these works represent the place of gardens within the movements of humans caught in turbulent flows. An ARC Discovery Project.
