I am delighted to have had work (The Ark) selected for inclusion in the Agri-Cultures/Seeds Links Exhibition. The show represents a truly global cast of thirty artists from various parts of the world. It is an exciting new project first instigated in 2018 in which science and art come together to celebrate and highlight issues around seeds, biodiversity and culture.
The Seed Cultures Initiative aims are to
"create an archive of visual artworks to help conserve the cultural heritage of seeds. Its aim is to celebrate the ways in which seeds live within vast webs of interrelations and to honour the fertile bonds between biological and cultural diversity in argri- foods systems"
Hosted in association with the Svalbard Global Seed Bank, the Seed Cultures exhibition features artists whose work explores seeds and their wider connection to culture. For the past two years an archive of physical work has been deposited in the vault alongside over a million seeds from around the world. The inclusion of art work is an excitng new initiative which will continue to build over the coming years.
I would like to invite you to explore the project and all of the artists work on the website coordinated by artist Sara Schneckloth and senior scientist Fern Wickson. It can be viewed here
