Between Plants and People

15. May 2019 - 13. Oct 2019

Plants have always been important. However, the depiction and our use of them are historically and culturally biased and tells about our world view and how we perceive and value nature.

In the exhibition Flora we will, primarily through contemporary art, look at artists' use of plants and flowers related to subjects like botany, gender, power, order/disorder and harmony.

Among the participating artists are:  Gerd Tinglum, Camilla Berner, Joscelyn Gardner, Ingela Ihrmann, Alberto Baraya, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Kristin Tårnesvik & Espen Sommer Eide, Danh Vo, Marit Victoria Wulff Andreassen, Roland Persson, Kalle Hamm & Band of Weeds.
