The age-old appeal of the world of plants takes on a special meaning in Israeli art, where artists
grapple with the significance of local flora as symbols of cultural and national identity. The
exhibition examines traditional scientific botanical drawings and their evolution in the works
of contemporary Israeli artists, who engage with their predecessors and present their personal
perspectives on the subject matter – at times political and critical, at times allegorical, and at
times revealing a yearning for nature steeped in fear for its fate and for our own.
