> DESCRIPTION

In A Discourse on Plants, RH Gallery showcases the regal, pervasive, and occasionally ominous plant life confronted in contemporary art. Presenting depictions ranging from the cultivated and domestic to what Werner Herzog memorably described as “the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder”, the exhibition demonstrates the ways in which plants function as markers, metaphors and subjects of an anthropocentric world. Rather than focusing on one particular approach, the exhibition embraces a multiplicity of contemporary artistic practices demonstrating political, art historical and social strata through plant life. Shown together, the works produce a virtual arboretum.
