An exploration in the preservation of Indigenous plants through considered biophilic design. Featuring Tait’s new Xylem collection by leading Australian designer, Adam Goodrum.
Many of Victoria’s Indigenous ecological sites are rapidly becoming vulnerable due to industrialised agriculture and urbanisation. Recultivate seeks to spread ideas around the importance of preserving these grasslands, shrublands and wetlands, and how considered biophilic design may assist in sustaining these indispensable plants and ecosystems. Produced in partnership with Victorian Indigenous Nurseries Co-op, TERRAIN and Collingwood Yards, Recultivate illustrates a vital conduit between people and plants.
17 – 27 March
Collingwood Yards (Courtyard)
35 Johnston St, Collingwood
Mon – Wed: 7.30am – 6pm
Thur- Sun: 7.30am – 11pm
The installation is accessible at your leisure within opening hours. Though not required, we do recommend bringing your earphones to experience the audio aspect of the installation.
