The artist’s childhood memory of a patch of English garden protected by a worn saree will be created and sustained in collaboration with local residents. Ongoing visitors will be provided with instructions and the responsibility of nurturing the plants and watching them grow. This installation brings layers of new life to the space with growing beds constructed from crates and pallets sourced from local businesses, and embellished with sarees donated to charity shops.
Mid-September to end-September
