The main aim of this exhibition is to demonstrate different representations of the physical forms in the space and metaphorical ideas in relation to the plant’s origins. Some of the work will look at the literal space as an oasis or adding hand crafted flowers in and amongst the plants. Other forms will be slightly more conceptual and look in to how Joseph Bank’s original Endeavour Voyage effected the countries he visited. Also ideas affecting the continents themselves in relation to their own particular history.
