Artist Michèle Noach, who has worked for 9 years with Cape Farewell, spent her Eden Project 3-year artist residency working with horticulturist Ian Martin. They grew, researched and observed Arctic Poppies, the most northerly flowering plant in the world. In an evening chaired by Quentin Cooper, they discuss their Cornish findings with Arctic Poppy expert Professor Per Mølgaard, who will also present a short talk on the importance of colour in poppies.
This event launches Michèle's lenticular (optical 3D) exhibition at University of Oxford Botanic Garden which opens May 16th.
This event is organised by Cape Farewell. Cape Farewell instigates a cultural response to climate change with an ambitious programme of activity, bringing together leading artists, writers, scientists and educators.
