A selection of Copenhagen-based ruderal and weedy species were collected by the curatorial team, including Dog-rose (Rosa canina), Common snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus), common burdock (Arctium minus), common reed (Phragmites australis), dense-flowered mullein (Verbascum densiflorum), Canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis), common hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna), black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia). Previous burials were featured on posters in the exhibition space, include current-day Troy, New York as documented here, and the others listed below.
