REPLANT: a New Generation of Botanical Art

Replant is a ground breaking exhibition which straddles boundaries between science and art.

The exhibition reinvestigates botanical drawings through its six diverse and renowned Australian artists: Fiona Hall (SA), Judy Watson (QLD), Winsome Jobling (NT), Deborah Wurrkidj (NT), Marita Sambono (NT), Irene Mungatopi (NT) and photographer Peter Eve from the Northern Territory.

Working with the Northern Territory Herbarium, artists explored the scientific, cultural and social aspects of Indigenous plant species with traditional knowledge custodians from the Daly River region. Images were then developed as twenty-six limited edition etchings.
