2. RSPB MINSMERE, 'EXTINCTION ALERT ', September 28th to 29th, 2013
Humans pose the greatest threat to nature. Three years into the United Nations Decade on Biodiversity, the ground breaking ‘State of Nature Report’ launched by David Attenborough shows that nature is in trouble, and 60% of UK species are threatened with extinction. Human beings are intricately part of the biological web. There is a cyclical interconnectivity to these losses. The loss of 97% of lowland semi-natural grass, 20% of chalk grassland and thousands of miles of hedgerows (a result of intensive agriculture) has led to the decline of wildflowers. Consequently the inter-dependence between flowers and pollinating insects, and their survival, has been severely affected.
The exhibition conveys, through photography, ceramics, painting and pastels response to the problem, and provoke questions as to what we, as individuals, can do

1. NATIONAL TRUST SUTTON HOO, 3rd to 19th AUGUST 2012, UN-EARTHED
A photographic display of Saxon herbal plant remedies
Cyclamen hederafolium remedy, e.g. “In the case that a mans hair fall off, take this same wort and put it into the nostrils.”
Herbs were the medicine in the Middle Ages along with a mix of magical and spiritual rituals. In Old English medical vocabulary healing herbs are called leech worts. 'Leech' means 'healer' and 'wort' means 'plant'.
Saxon herbal medicine is based on the alleviation of specific symptoms as they manifest themselves. Remedies are rarely preventative. A single plant can have multiple uses and a variety of names.
