The Calyx: Plants with Bite

Plants with Bite tells the story of the captivating and bizarre world of carnivorous plants. As fascinating as they are horrifying, these plants are truly a miracle of evolution.

Sun, soil and sky – this is all most plants need to survive. Yet carnivorous plants can thrive in inhospitable environments by luring, trapping, killing and digesting insects.

At this free floral display you’ll get to see the iconic Venus flytrap: an example of a ‘snap trap’. You can also observe the ‘pitfall’, ‘flypaper’, ‘lobster-pot’ and ‘bladder’ styles of traps.

Combining botany with hands-on activities, Plants with Bite showcases these fascinating plants while bringing awareness to the ways in which many species are currently under threat due to habitat loss.

Curated by horticulturalists at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, this is the largest vertical floral wall in the southern hemisphere.

Every day, 10am to 4pm
Monday 1 October 2018 to Monday 30 September 2019

Feast of K-Chopsticks: Korean Craft and Design

Feast your eyes on Korean craft and design! Spanning relics, artifacts and handicrafts, Feast of K-Chopsticks showcases a wide variety of artistic chopsticks related to local craftsmanship in Korea.

Chopsticks are widely used across East Asia, and are commonly used by around 30 per cent of the global population. Although the shape of the sticks differs from country to country, one thing remains constant: they are comprised of 2 identical sticks. The factor that most influences the design of the chopsticks is local cuisine and local cooking traditions.

Recent chopstick designs make you want to hold them. When holding chopsticks of various shades and colours, the hand becomes part of the design. From earthy designs using materials found in nature, to use of eco-friendly non-toxic materials, such as silicon and corn, chopsticks continue to evolve.

This exhibition is made possible with the support of Cheongju City, South Korea.

Weekdays, 10am to 6pm

Wednesday 10 October to Friday 9 November 2018

Opening night: Wednesday, 10 October, 5pm to 8pm.
