Ann Shelton's new images explore the powerful relationship between colonisation, nationalism and plants in the context of Aotearoa.  In a kind of contrived bouquet garni set against the musty colour palette of the Arts and Crafts movement, these domestic botanic epitaphs engage with the reasons emigrants brought plants with them, why they went to elaborate ends to preserve them on their long journey and the consequences of their interventions.
