Shared Reckonings Art Exhibition

Adelaide Botanic Gardens

A mesmerising new collection of glowing, botanically-inspired art will be on display in Adelaide Botanic Garden from Wednesday 24 February.

In Shared Reckonings, renowned South Australian artist, Catherine Truman, explores the impact of light on human vision and the growth of plants.

Truman’s exhibition combines thermoplastics and photo-luminescent powders with exquisite, thought-provoking results.


The event, which is part of the 2021 Adelaide Festival, was created following two concurrent residencies at the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium, and the Flinders Centre for Ophthalmology at Flinders University.

Truman’s works have been influenced by powerful themes: the catastrophic bushfires that swept the country last summer, climate change-induced biodiversity loss, and the global pandemic.
