A GARDEN OF ONE'S OWN, (2020-)
Created during the lockdown on an iPhone, this films is a gardening manifesto inspired by the books of Virginia Woolf (A Room of One's Own and Orlando). The work explores how we can deepen and queer our relationship with our back garden, and in turn with ourselves. Queering gardening is paying attention to places in the garden that are often discarded, liberating, and embracing murky rough edges.
