Visited the Oxford Botanical Garden yesterday to meet the other artists involved in the project as well as staff who work there.  After discussing the project, we were shown round the gardens in the winter sunshine learning about the garden’s history and the stories behind some of the plants.

The Garden is the oldest of its kind in the UK and is home to around seven thousand different types of plant, making it the most compact yet diverse collection of plants in the world. Plants are grown to support the garden’s educational programme, for research projects, and as part of plant conservation.

The artists involved in this project have been invited to create work in response to the garden and its plants.  As the result is to be shown over three evenings next September, the theme of twilight, or dusk, is also to be drawn on.
