Located in Arboretum Library

About This Event

Found Among the Leaves; a Bibliophytology  (February 22-May 28)is an exploration of the rich and complex relationships that entangle object with information, image with medium. The Library serves as both the project’s exhibition venue and its source material. Through works of collage, assemblage, painting, and objects from the Arboretum’s own collections, the exhibition will unfold as an aesthetic manifestation of the library itself: Trees made of books, flowers from scientific journals, bark as paper…. As the natural and cultural histories of plants and people as ecological companions continue to branch, how might they grow? At a time when the intimacy of printed matter is giving way to the ubiquity of digitalization, what do we make of the relationship between the book and the plant? Let’s look among the leaves.
