In 2014 I was Artist in Residence at Wakehurst (Royal Botanic Gardens Kew) for the Meadow Festival and accompanying Meadow Folk exhibition.
The residency, ‘Meadow Weave‘ involved working with with species-rich hay plants, grown and harvested on site. The brief was to explore the creative possibilities of the material and create a piece that references the context of hay-making; how the activity binds communities together.
The work was installed in the timber framed buildings (opposite the Millennium Seed Bank).
You can see photos, watch video clips and read about the work and its development in my blog.
