Remapping the River | Plant Walk with Christina Kingsbury and Danielle Gehl Hagel
Sunday, November 14 | 2 – 4 pm
Eramosa River, Royal Recreation Trail
Free | In-person | To register, email Nicole Neufeld at email@example.com
Join artist and herbalist Danielle Gehl Hagel and artist Christina Kingsbury for a foraging walk and conversation along the banks of the Eramosa River, learning about how plant life tells its own story of migration and dislocation, disruption and regeneration. Exploring the history of the riverbanks as former landfills and fluid spaces of botanical reclamation, the walk will be a chance to share knowledge, dreams, and thoughts related to plants and the land. In the context of Kingsbury’s work with Meech Boakye on view at the gallery, the artists use the idea of ‘transplant’ as a way of rethinking the connections between plant and human bodies, considering the relationship between plants that have migrated without agency and the ways that human bodies have been transplanted against their will through displacement and enslavement. Registration is required as space is limited.
