Rooted Beings

Now lockdown is over, and if you are near The Wellcome Collection (183 Euston Road, London NW1 2BE) between 24 March and 29 August, there is what sounds an interesting exhibition of artworks and historic artefacts all about plants.

As the blurb says “Plants are sensitive, complex and interconnected beings, playing surprisingly active roles in ecosystems and human societies. As the current environmental crisis exposes the vital yet fragile connections between our health and that of our planet, this exhibition considers how we might rethink the significance and agency of plants in nurturing our ecosystems and imagination.”
