Susie Vickery: Peregrinations of a Citizen Botanist | 25 March - 19 May 2023

Published on Friday, 17 February 2023 at 10:33:06 AM

Exhibition Dates 25 March – 19 May 2023

ARTISTS:  Susie Vickery, Nathan Crotty, Holly Story, Penny Jewell, Susi Rigg.

Peregrinations of a Citizen Botanist is an immersive and finely crafted installation by Susie Vickery which takes the form of a cabinet of curiosities, charting the journey of the 18th Century French botanist Jacques-Julien Houtou de Labillardière, who came to Western Australia in 1792 on the ship Recherche, captained by Bruni d’Entrecasteaux.

Vickery presents an alternative history of Labillardière’s journey, with the botanist gradually shedding his European preconceptions as he encounters a rich and ancient land. At a time of accelerating climate crisis, this exhibition invites viewers to reflect on our relationships with home and history, and to imagine an alternative future for the Australian environment.

Opening Night 24 March 2023.
