Fugitive Seeds – 18 Oct to 21 Dec

Wednesday 19 October–Wednesday 21 December 2022

Launch: Tuesday 18 October, 6–8pm

­CCA Derry~Londonderry is delighted to invite you to our upcoming exhibition Fugitive Seeds, curated by Borbála Soós. The exhibition features artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy, Maria Thereza Alves, Alasdair Asmussen Doyle, Minji Choi and Davinia-Ann Robinson.

Fugitive Seeds considers how endemic, alien and fugitive seeds connect to colonial histories including in Northern Ireland and more specifically Derry~Londonderry and its port.

The works included help unearth layered histories around plant and human migration and border ecologies. The exhibition and related events reflect on how histories of botanical, zoological and ethno-anthropological explorations have contributed to producing the Other, and the exoticization of certain species and peoples. They consider changing ecologies and (national) identities through stories of belonging, displacement and uprootedness and investigate the feeling of loss when thinking about the connections with far-away lands that might hold clues for one’s identity.
