A GARDEN OF ONE'S OWN, 2020-

A research project and film project about queering gardening and gardening as an extension of the self, loosely inspired by Virginia Woolf's literature.

 

I look at the places that are neglected in the garden. Those dark places, those dirty places, the bits you don’t look at, underneath your plant, deep in the dirt around the edges, in the spider's webs, in the decaying leaf matter. Those are the places to look, those are the places I give attention to when I’m gardening.

 

I want flowers to pop up where I least expect them. I want a place to sit and be happy, amongst all the messiness.
