Herba morbus  is a museum-style exhibition that explores the theme of plant intelligence. By displaying illustrations and artifacts from the field,  Herba morbus  examines the ways in which we try to understand plants; and asks a question that eternally mystifies:  What does a plant know? Examining the question from a scientific, pseudoscientific, mythological and art perspective,  Herba morbus  traces the idea of plant intelligence from its Aristotelian roots to the present day.   Catherine Polcz, 2016  Writing for the exhibition by Alicia Nauta, download  here
