FLORA

Flowers carry a multitude of meanings and uses: they can represent love, honour or death, are used as decoration or medicine, are maligned by art historians for their ‘useless beauty’, and celebrated in science for their role in sustaining ecosystems. Often, flowers are aligned with women or with femininity, connections that colour the ways in which we value, understand, and construct our world.

Taking inspiration from Zadok Ben-David’s Human Nature, this exhibition presents a bouquet of works drawn from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art in which flowers and floral motifs are documented, celebrated, mused upon or deconstructed.

An immersive sound commission from Western Australian artist and musician Mei Saraswati augments the exhibition.

Exhibitions from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art are supported by SHEILA A foundation for women in visual art.
