Grounded in Memory will explore local plants - indigenous, introduced, wild or garden - special to the contributing artists. It will allow the artist and the audience to reflect on memories, pleasing or unsettling, created by or evoked by plants. Plants, with their sensational colours, textures, scents, and affinity to a landscape or event, have the power to conjure up memories. Plants and memories go hand-in-hand to create a full sensory image.
