Connectus Botanicus - Jennie Newman
Connectus Botanicus is the culmination of Jennie Newman’s Honour’s (Contemporary Arts) research that looks at urban people’s disconnect from the natural world. Using weeds as a metaphor for people, she creates photograms on old photographic paper, cyanotype coated surfaces and leaves.
Weeds, like us live, wherever they take hold, yet they are seen as feral pests. We appear unable to recognise our own role in their dispersal and out interconnection with all life on this planet.
Connectus Botanicus runs from 7 to 15 of June at Spectrum Project Space.
