Exhibition Hortus botanicus
"Jewels from Asia," a summer exhibition showcasing iconic masterpieces and the botanical gardens in Java by C.G.C. Reinwardt.
I designed the exhibition in the Hoge kas and Victoria's kassen, showcasing the 'Crown Jewels' of the Leiden Hortus. Old drawings, correspondences, and new photos are displayed amidst the leaves of the Hortus botanicus Leiden.

The exhibition 'Crown Jewels from Asia' introduces you to the fantastic plants from Indonesia. In 2017, it marked the 200th anniversary of the founding of the botanical garden in Bogor (Java). The then 's Lands Plantentuin te Buitenzorg was established by C.G.C. Reinwardt on May 18, 1817. Six years later, in 1823, Reinwardt became the director of the Hortus botanicus Leiden.
