An exhibition organised by King's Cultural Institute opens tomorrow at the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House.

Plant Science was created by site-specific performance and installation artists Ewan Forster and Christopher Heighes "in response to the university's abandoned Plant Sciences Department laboratories in Herne Hill ... a site of great innovation in the teaching of biological sciences."

The exhibition runs at the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House East Wing, Strand WC2R 2LS until 11th June, and is open daily, 11.00-18.00. Admission is free. More info here.
