RAM Talk: Stories of Plants’ Names
2018.07.28 19:00 - 20:30 | Talks
In Chinese bird and flower markets, totally different plants may have an identical name, such as “Golden Fortune”. Different from botanists’ scientific classification of plants, people use these auspicious names to convey their wishes for better life and beautiful imaginations about nature. This has inspired the artist Lin Tianmiao to create My Garden, an artwork that is included in her exhibition “Systems” and now displayed on the fourth floor of the Rockbund Art Museum.
