Unlemon – a meandering tale of citrus – The Riddoch
2 October, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until 13 November, 2022
Unlemon – a meandering tale of citrus reveals a multi-layered story of citrus – its origins, trajectory, diversity and tenacity.
It begins with a reimagining of seventeenth century Dutch art where paintings of citrus – peel unfurling – evoked representations of wealth, exoticism, trade and expansion. The exhibition continues in the still life genre, exploring citrus’ symbiotic relationship with us humans, in both its global success and the disease that threatens to devastate the species. Underpinning this is the crucial role played by Australia’s own native citrus.
