re_generation

re_generation presents the work of artists inspired by botanic subjects and specimens.  The works range from literal, sometimes academic, representations of flowers and plants to artists' use of the flower as a symbolic motif for human conditions and the transience of life. The centerpiece of the exhibition An establishment for the diffusion of knowledge is a new installation by Melbourne artist Kate Cotching, commissioned as part of the 2004 Next Wave Festival.  

re_generation is part of the 2004 Next Wave Festival, Melbourne's biennial event dedicated to young people and the arts.
