Virtual Exhibition: Seedscapes

Virtual Exhibition: Seedscapes: Future-proofing nature

Explore our latest exhibition from home with our new virtual experience.

Explore Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature in this interactive virtual experience created by V21 Artspace.

Seedscapes brings together five contemporary artists exploring global efforts to safeguard vital plant species from extinction. Plant diversity is rapidly declining, and faces threats from global warming, pollution and war. Yet without seeds and their potential for food and medicine, we cannot sustain ourselves. Featuring photography, moving image and sculpture, Seedscapes reveals how international artists, biologists and ecologists are responding to these challenges.

Dornith Doherty documents seed banks around the world, using scientific imaging to reveal seeds in ‘suspended animation’. Sant Khalsa responds to the plight of forest fires and deforestation in California. Chrystel Lebas follows in the footsteps of botanist E.J. Salisbury, photographing natural habitats almost a hundred years later. Liz Orton goes behind the scenes at the Herbarium at Kew, while Heidi Morstang journeys to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Norwegian Archipelago. 

Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature is on display at impressions Gallery until 12 December 2020, click here to read more about the exhibition. For details on visiting the gallery safely, you can read our guidelines here.
