Four artists come together to examine how humans interact with plants and gardens as healing beings.
In this fascinating SALA exhibition, artists John Blines, Christobel Kelly, Stephanie Radok, Lauren Simeoni present work which focuses on the medicinal and healing properties of plants and gardens.
It acknowledges the many stories that link plants, people and health: some are culture-specific, some are personal, some are even old wives tales.
A combination of craft, drawing, jewellery, metal, mixed media and photography have been used to reflect the diversity and complexity of cultures and their relationships to plants all over the world.
The exhibition draws attention to the quiet generosity and usefulness of the plants and plant products we enjoy every day.
Find the exhibition in the Museum of Economic Botany, in the heart of Adelaide Botanic Garden.
