This exhibition presented a series of findings and artworks produced following a botanical survey of the plants found growing on the inner walls of the Derry Walls over a period of several months. It places these findings within the context of current conservation strategies for the monument and the broader context of plant autonomy and environmental conservation. It also attempts to challenge cultural assumptions responsible for designating certain plants as ‘weeds’, and the mainstream anthropocentric approach to plant life.
