Small Acts of Care.
Art Licks Weekend, London. October 2019

Referencing the South London Botanical Institute’s collections, botanical library and herbarium, GU Womxn have produced a collective ‘flimsy’ – a short publication which is framed by a research day at SLBI in July 2019. Taking the form of a flimsy (a temporary holding folder for the specimens, made of archival paper material equivalent to a sheet of newsprint), the work is formed of individual and collective memories, thoughts and responses which link our experience at the SLBI with wider discussions around the complex practice of botany, its historical lineage, social impact and practical applications.
