papering over the cracks
I was awarded a Pathways Bursary from Somerset Art Works to work with and produce work for b-side Festival in Portland, Dorset. The piece was staged within a community walled garden that had once been a fine Jacobean home. The work began as an absurdist attempt to reinstate the garden as the home it once was - by painstakingly wallpapering garden tools and domestic objects. The resulting tableau raised questions about hidden truths in the domestic space obscured by decorative coverings.
