Mnemonic Vegetables :: Charlotte Haywood & Edward Horne plus Invited guests
29 Aug - 1 Nov 2020
Gallery 3 & The Quadrangle

Mnemonic Vegetables help us “remember” our connection to the plant world, Mother Earth and each other. Through recent residencies at the Tropical Indigenous Ethnobotany Centre (JCU) Cairns, GoctaLab- Amazonas, Peru, various locations in Mexico and the participation of invited guests; multi-layered stories of plant knowledge, practices, materials and collaborations are honoured through process and form.

An exhibition in two parts, Mnemonic Vegetables combines the work of Horne’s large-scale outdoor see-saw installation in The Quadrangle, with wall works, vocals, multi-channel video, community workshops, performances and exchanges by Haywood and invited artists inside the gallery.

The works look at multi-cultural mnemonics-or-memory devices; by way of our relationships to story, mythologies, melodies, landscapes, the plant kingdom, ecologies and ourselves. In the hope of creating space for reverence and remembrance of our connection to the plant world, the planet and each other.



This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.
