Linda Tegg's Grasslands, a grand meditation on nature versus culture at the State Library of Victoria, is on exhibition from Sat 11 Oct – Sun 23 Nov as part of the Melbourne Festival.
Grasslands is an attempt to re-create the pre-settlement grasslands that once occupied the site on which the State Library of Victoria now stands. Working with experts at The University of Melbourne Department of Resource Management and Geography, Tegg selected a plethora of specially grown native plants and grasses.
This project is supported by The Georges Mora Foundation, the State Library of Victoria, the Australia Council, the City of Melbourne and the Melbourne School of Land and Environment, Melbourne University.
