Planting for the Planet @ RHS Garden Bridgewater

27 May - 27 August 2022

As part of Look Photo Biennial 2022: Climate, the Planting for the Planet exhibition at RHS Garden Bridgewater celebrates the communities contributions to taking climate action by greening Greater Manchester and demonstrates the importance of plants and nature in creating resilient, healthy and beautiful spaces for people and the planet to coexist.

 

Young people have been integral to raising the profile of the climate emergency and creating positive action, which is why RHS Communities teamed up with Socially Engaged Photographer-in-Residence for the University of Salford Art Collection and Open Eye Gallery, Gwen Riley Jones, and youth environment charity Action for Conservation to create two pieces of artwork displayed in the exhibition.

 

A range of plant-based methods of photography were used, and the images in exhibition are anthotypes, a method of creating photographs using nothing but juice extracted from spinach leaves. Their creations demonstrate the essential relationship between people and plants to create climate resilient communities.

 

Gwen Riley Jones is a photographer and socially engaged practitioner based in Greater Manchester. Currently Socially Engaged Photographer-in-Residence at Salford Art Collection in partnership with Open Eye Gallery. Gwen has been working with groups of young people across Salford to explore how collections can be used and understood to help us tell stories. 

 

Action for Conservation work to bring the magic of nature into young people’s lives, inspiring a youth movement committed to conservation and to the earth, and empowering young people aged 12-18 to become the next generation of environmental leaders. The artworks displayed in this exhibition were created by Angélica, Hannah, Charis, Daniel, LiLing, Mariam, Muhammed, Olivia and Tamar.

 

The exhibition is open Monday – Sunday, 10AM – 6PM in the Potting Sheds at RHS Garden Bridgewater, Salford. For more details, click here.
