PART OF THE WHAT ON EARTH PROJECT

Curated by Susie Vickery

Wander through an interactive cabinet of curiosities representing the physical and metaphorical journey through time of Jacques-Julien Houtou de Labillardière, an 18th Century French botanist, as he time-travels through the Australian bush, studying the flora and slowly absorbing it into his wardrobe.

Peregrinations of a Citizen Botanist forms part of a wider celebration of the botanical world under the banner What On Earth with events and exhibitions at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Midland Junction Arts Centre, Mundaring Arts Centre and Kings Park Festival.
