Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh – Shipping Roots

Hosted in: BSL – led by Trudi Collier
Duration: 1 hour
Age Suitability: 8+ (guideline)
Price: £5


Plants have always traversed seas, intentionally and inadvertently. In Shipping Roots, Keg de Souza draws on RBGE’s collections to tell tales of eucalyptus, prickly pear and ‘alien’ seeds, tracing legacies through the British Empire and specifically linking Australia, India and the UK. These stories relate to the artist’s own cultural removal, drawn from her lived experiences as a person of Goan heritage whose ancestral lands were colonised, to living as a settler on unceded Gadigal land in Sydney.
