Artist Talk: On the Nature of Botanical Gardens

Join us for a conversation between the curator and featured artists from the exhibition On the Nature of Botanical Gardens. As we approach the end of the exhibition, the participants look back at their involvement within the exhibition. With artists: Zico Albaquni, Arahmaiani, Lifepatch members Agung ‘Geger’ Firmanto and Agus “Timbil” Tri Budiarto, along with the curator Sadiah Boonstra.

The artists will delve into their work and artistic practices, thinking decolonially about nature and the future of contemporary art in Indonesia. As On the Nature of Botanical Gardens comes to a close on 16th August 2020, we invite the artists to reflect on their work within the context of the exhibition and the shared history between Indonesia and the Netherlands.

This panel discussion premiered on 4th August 2020 on the Framer Framed YouTube channel.


On the Nature of Botanical Gardens features nine contemporary Indonesian artists who look critically at botanical gardens, colonial power, knowledge building and the economics of nature, its legacies and current consequences of approaching nature and plants. The exhibition seeks to decolonise the concept of botanical gardens and their role in building a Dutch colonial empire in Indonesia.
