Picked and Pressed

Picked and pressed: the appeal of edible plants

RAMM’s Youth Pan­el have worked pas­sion­ate­ly to curate an exhi­bi­tion that invites the audi­ence to recon­sid­er their rela­tion­ship with the plant world.

During the process, members of the Youth Panel humbly identified themselves as writers, researchers and artists, in a bid to expressively call to attention our damaging habits of food consumption in a society of increased global food insecurity.

Under the guiding hand of artistic director, Amy Shelton, the members channelled independent thought and artistic instinct to create the artworks for this exhibition. In working towards the display, ‘Picked and Pressed’ inspired a blend of nostalgic thinking, scientific research, inventive conversations, and an unravelling of personal stories.
