About Theatrum Botanicum

Theatrum Botanicum is an extensive body of work by Uriel Orlow encompassing film, photography, sound and archival material that uses the botanical world as a stage to discuss the links between nature and humans, rural and cosmopolitan medicine, tradition and modernity across different geographies, histories and systems of knowledge. As part of Refugee Festival Scotland, Uriel Orlow is showing Muthi, What Plants Were Called Before They Had a Name and a new work, Beautiful but Dangerous as a way to think on migration and citizenship through botanics, botanical nationalism, plant migration and other legacies of colonialism.

The exhibition will run from Thursday 20 – Monday 24 June. Exhibition preview Wednesday 19 June 18.00 – 20.00.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Theatrum Botanicum are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
