Pertaining to Things Natural

Exhibition at the Chelsea Physic Garden

Jul 2012 – 31 Oct 2012

In 1673 the Society of Apothecaries founded a Physic Garden at Chelsea for the study and propagation of medicinal plants. This exhibition, Pertaining to Things Natural, presents monumental sculptures along with delicate drawings and ephemeral land art projects, giving a compelling insight into contemporary creativity inspired by the natural world.

This is the first collaborative project presented by Art-Happens and The Eden Project, and sets out to consider a new way of presenting and dealing with environmental issues through contemporary art practice.

The exhibition features work by Peter Randall-Page, Hugo Wilson, Jo Coupe, Tim Knowles, William Peers, Chris Drury and other contemporary artists.
