A source of shelter and sustenance, fuel and tools, decoration and adornment, medicine and myth, humanity’s history and evolution is intimately entangled with that of the plant kingdom – an impossibly rich, ancient and abundant form of life on earth, but one utterly different from our own. The Botanical Mind: Art, Mysticism and the Cosmic Tree brings together the work of over 50 artists, spanning more than 500 years, to investigate the ongoing significance of the plant kingdom to human life, consciousness and spirituality. In doing so it highlights the subjectivity and being of plants, their influence on various knowledge-forms and wisdom-traditions, and how we engage with and activate them in culture, counter-culture, art and music.
