GALLERY 1 | The Botanist's Daughter
Alexandra Haeseker

An installation of new contemporary print works by Canadian artist Alexandra Haeseker, drawing inspiration from the rich and bountiful resources of hand-pulled engravings found in Museum and Library collections, illustrating botanical and entomological themes.

The Botanist’s Daughter subverts relationships of scale between the viewer and the plants and insects represented in the exhibition, encouraging us to develop a new paradigm in relating to the natural world, by considering more fully what is often invisible to our eyes, and below our feet.

GALLERY 2 | Photography in Print

Nick Devison, Morwenna Kearsley, Kristina Chan and Marysia Lachowicz
Part of the ACTINIC Festival's annual programme

Edinburgh Printmakers and The ACTINIC Festival are working in partnership to present an exhibition of photographic printmaking by Scottish based artists, that celebrates the techniques of ‘Actinism’ in the context of contemporary visual arts practice.

Each of the works on display demonstrate the techniques of ‘Actinism’, which is an intrinsic property in radiation that produces photochemical activity, and within the medium of photography includes processes such as photochromism, pinhole photography, salt albumen, chemigram, and instant film.
