October 2023. The Museum of Plant Art First Exhibition and publication launch.

Chapelle des cordeliers Toulouse. 14Oct- 26 Nov

This first exhibition of The Museum of Plant Art has been developed with the support of LIPME (Laboratoire des interactions plantes - microbes - environnement. INRAE/CNRS)  as part of the Résidence 1+2 programme. This immersive exhibition recreates some of the elements of flower-pollinator interactions, to facilitate discussion amongst exhibition audiences of their/the pollinator experience as an artistic one. In this iteration, The Museum of Plant Art celebrates the complexity and beauty of plant colouration choices, using plant-based biodegradable iridescent materials donated by the University of Cambridge and commercial companies.

This first exhibition was paired with a first publication by Filigranes Editions and a day conference at the Museum of Contemporary Art Les Abattoirs in Toulouse.

Both the publication and the conference aimed to facilitate reflective debate and expand on the immersive exhibition experience with a series of contributions from leading philosophers, scientists, journalists, and art academics fostering debate on us, our understanding of art and our understanding of earth co-habitants.
