This major outdoor sculpture exhibition presents monumental sculptural works, ephemeral land art projects and delicate interventions by over twenty leading artists. Curated by David Worthington, Vice President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Pertaining to Things Natural... takes its name from the 17th century definition of 'physic' and is a reminder of the Physic Garden's founding mission as a place for the study of useful plants, especially those used in medicines.
The exhibition takes place throughout the entire site, with works installed in greenhouses, the café, the entrance lobby and the composting area, as well as the garden itself. This is a unique opportunity to discover the response of contemporary artists to the history of the garden and to wider environmental issues.
