Going on Without Us

Do plants care about art? How closely are they watching us? Are we too late to start listening? 
Using the Bovey Teaching Greenhouse as a gallery space, three artists interpret the idea of plants as sensitive beings. The title of the exhibition alludes to the agency playfully accorded vegetables in Lorna Crozier’s poetry collection TheGarden Going On Without Us. Where Crozier imagines the secret lives of plants, the artists of Going On Without Us toy with visions of a posthuman world: as a speculative fiction, philosophical argument, and allegory of the present.
