Ausstellung: A Curious Herbal
19. August, 18:00 - 20:00
In this exhibition plant portraits that were created during the workshop A Curious Herbal will be presented including a guidebook Zine.
The title of the project, A Curious Herbal, is borrowed from the 1739 publication by Elizabeth Blackwell, which was the first herbal (a publication of medicinal botanical illustrations) to include medicinal plants brought to Europe from the Americas. While Blackwell was likely referring to the strangeness of these recent arrivals, we will use the word “curious” to refer to ourselves. Our Herbal will be the product of an attitude of curiosity taken towards our immediate surroundings. A curiosity that leads to an appreciation of the biodiversity and cultural richness found within our urban ecosystem.
