Discarded filing cabinets, Audio recordings
With Inverleith House at Caledonian Hall, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Scotland

We, Gatherers explores the themes of information collecting and classification which underpin our drive to understand the natural world. Produced collaboratively by nine artists, the former Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh was turned into a forest-like stage of filing cabinets. Speakers inside the cabinets played back the recorded sound of opening and closing drawers.

In collaboration with Inverleith House, Jacob Bee, Ronald Boer, Caitlin Comrie, Valery Dempsey, Florian Graf, Naomi Hennig, Melissa MacRobert and Christine Wylie.
