In this talk, artist and educator Lucia Harley explores plants and people from the order of taxonomy to the uncertainty of human existence and emotion. In May 2022, Lucia worked as an artist in residence at Mirante Xique Xique, Igatu, Brazil, where she walked a series of botanical trails published by her botanist parents within the Chapada Diamantina, engaged with local community, and collaborated and responded through art. This talk traces her journey and inquiry from the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew to Northeast Brazil and Frome in Somerset where she lives.

Lucia Harley is a freelance artist educator who works with objects, live actions, drawing and film.
