Pause, breathe and notice the complexity and beauty of plants.
Entwined: plants and people explores our intrinsic relationship with plants through photography, illustrations, immersive projections, and historical objects.
In this evocative State Library of Queensland exhibition, Entwined displays the transformative works of award-winning creatives as they document and reinterpret plant life in modern Australia.
Entwined also digs into State Library’s rare and beautiful botanical collections, exploring our day-to-day connection with plants, unfurling fascinating historical and contemporary stories in the process.
See how our lives are experienced and, at times, defined through our interactions with plants across social, emotional, scientific, and creative endeavours.
