Blok Art Space – On Botany
“On Botany” exhibition brings together ten artists who emphasize on the relationship between botanic and art, where the artists approach botanical science from an archival and narrative perspective, and display their studies on plants in different disciplines and geographies. Partaking in these study processes, viewers find the opportunity to observe various plants from different esthetic points of view. The ten artists that approach botanical science from different perspectives concurrently start new discussions within their fields with their works under the sub and side-branches of plant biology, plant geometry, aesthetic studies on nature, healing methods through plants, and evolution of plants. A study that ranges from the depictions of extraterrestrial plants to earth’s plants on the verge of extinction, the exhibition simultaneously aims to expand the borders that define botanical terminology.
Main topics featured in “On Botany” will be opened to discussion during the exhibition’s two month showing with the attendance of artists and guest researchers at BLOK art space Çukurcuma.
