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. Featuring the work of Anni and Josef Albers, Consuelo Chelo Gonzalez Amezcuelo Amexcua, Anna Atkins, Hilma af Klint, Henri Michaux, and textiles and ceramics from the Shipibo-Conibo people, among many others.
