BOTANICA: The Art of Plants
Cork City, Co. Cork
17 March - 18 September 2022
BOTANICA: The Art of Plants gathers selected historic and contemporary works from the collection to probe how artists have, over time, represented gardens, flowers, herbs, and trees in their practices.

Running from spring to autumn, this exhibition touches on the histories of plant collecting – and ethical questions of colonialism that arise from it – and considers the place of gardening, the hidden meanings of flowers, and the medicinal applications of plants.

In art, plants have figured as accompaniments to important themes, borne symbolic meanings, and emerged as subjects in their own right.

In this exhibition, the selected artworks range from landscapes and still lifes to botanical and arboreal studies. Are there encoded meanings in flowers? What are the medicinal qualities of plants? Can trees speak?

Mon - Sat: 10:00-17:00 (Thur until 20:00)

Sun & Bank Holidays: 11:00–16:00
