Description

Discover how science and art combine to highlight the importance of plant life at the Tellus Art Project at the Australian PlantBank.

The Tellus Art Project forms one part of the Herbarium Tales research project funded by the Australian Research Council and is comprised of two exhibitions running over a year. Lead Investigator Dr Prudence Gibson, a scholar in Critical Plant Studies, aims to connect plant science with the arts to make people rethink plant qualities and their engagement with herbaria. Professor Marie Sierra from the University of Melbourne has curated Exhibition 1 and other collaborators on the exciting project include Associate Professor Sigi Jottkandt from the University of NSW and Dr Brett Summerell from the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust.

The artists part of the exciting collaborative project aim to re-value the prized plant specimen collection at the National Herbarium of New South Wales, which recently unveiled its new state-of-the-art facility at the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan. The exhibitions aim to raise awareness of the importance of plant life and the Herbarium’s collection of more than 1 million plant specimens and visitors are encouraged to see the inspiration for the project by exploring the exciting new Herbarium facility during their visit.
