Janet Laurence will be joining The Planthunter editor Georgina Reid for an intimate conversation in conjunction with Art and the Garden: Janet Laurence on Sunday 10 November between 10:30AM – 12:00PM at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, presented by Garden Life.
Janet’s East Balmain garden is a reflection of her continued exploration into the aesthetics of care and the interconnectedness of all things. The Plunthunter in conversation with Janet will explore care and connectedness, the lessons she’s learned from plants and nature and the relationship between art and activism. The Planthunter is an online magazine devoted to celebrating plants and the varied ways humans interact with them.
“I have been personally been immensely inspired by Janet Laurence,’ says Georgina. ‘Her focus on care and connection, and the importance of action and beauty in the face of fear and hopelessness has influenced the way I see and write about the more-than-human world. Janet is an incredible woman, and I can’t wait to facilitate the sharing of her story and ideas in this conversation.”
