Artist Natalie Taylor celebrates the life beneath our feet, exploring our relationship with soil, the people who care for it, and the food production systems that rely on it.
Over a four-month residency at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Taylor has connected with a wide variety of staff and volunteers who care for our soil, from plant health scientists to community gardeners. She brings together her extensive research in this exhibition, making visible the vitality of soil not only through paintings, photographs and workshops, but also DNA analysis, poetic plates and a well-travelled cape.
Living Soil is supported by Players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
