The Collections Project | Kath Inglis: Of uncertain value

Museum of Economic Botany

Sunday July 14, 3pm

Please RSVP by Wednesday July 10

Guildhouse and the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium are delighted to present Of uncertain value, by South Australian artist Kath Inglis. Please join us and the artist for the exhibition opening at the Santos Museum of Economic Botany on Sunday July 14 at 4pm, with opening address by renowned established artist Catherine Truman.

Kath Inglis: Of uncertain value

PVC is the dominant material used by Adelaide-based contemporary jeweller Kath Inglis for over 15 years. She has been developing and mastering techniques that elevate the material, creating jewel-like works from this widely-produce plastic.

Kath has investigated the State Herbarium's Marine Algae Collection through the lens of ‘values”. Examining the Collection both within the context of the broader holdings of the Botanic Gardens and State Herbarium, and the impact of plastic waste on marine health, Kath has used her signature methodologies to also consider the value of materials and handmade objects.

Of uncertain value will be on show from July 14 to September 29 at the Museum of Economic Botany.

Please RSVP by Wednesday July 10
