Not Just a Garden

Commission: Furzey Gardens and Arts&Heritage to create work collaboratively with the community, to reveal the history and ecology of the garden and to celebrate the work of the people with learning disabilities which it supports.

We created an installation of films, cyanotypes, mixed media, and texts in the 16th century cottage and a sound installation…
The two films installed in the attic (Bluets and Betty’s Butterfly Box) were my personal response to the garden and residency whilst downstairs the installation related to the history and to the community. The sound installation in the garden was made out of 100 year old rhubarb forcing pots. You were invited to ‘Lift and Listen’ to hear the voices of the people who work there.
