Ever Met an 'Ugly' Flower?
Ever Met an 'Ugly' Flower? is the winning proposal for the Push/Pull Open Call at Archives at NCBS. The exhibition was launched on March 28, 2023 with a performative song, Unfolding Flowers, by Avril Stormy Unger.
Through themes of capitalism, colonisation, language and research, the exhibition explores gender, sexuality, botany and labour through the anchor of a flower.
