These works were made for an exhibition at Turf Projects, Croydon, in partnership with the Museum of Croydon.
"For the exhibition I selected a number of objects from the museum archive that I was drawn to, and made work in response to them. One of the museum objects I selected was an incomplete set of watercolours depicting English plant families – chilli peppers and aubergines are both part of the Solanum family of plants, which is featured in the album of watercolours. These works are kind of warped additions to the album." - Karanjit Panesar, 2020.

Karanjit is the co-founder & Co-director of East Bristol Contemporary, an artist-led initiative that counteracts the lack of showing spaces for emerging artists in Bristol and provides a unique and diverse programme of exhibitions and events.
