A Plant in the Wrong Place

The popular definition of a weed is ‘a plant in the wrong place’. This exhibition questions and complicates our relationship with invasive plants. Viewers are invited to explore the resilience and usefulness of weeds, as well as to consider how we can better care for the environment. Weeds are also used as an analogy to probe ideas of identity and displacement.
