Part of How far afield? a series of campus interventions that articulate different forms of care for the landscape by exploring how we come to understand and interact with the living beings — the plants, animals, minerals — that constitute it. This performance and installation on the campus' lawn explores the tensions between modernist architecture and green spaces by foregrounding questions of labour, landscaping, and the constructed definitions of what is natural and what is cultivated.
Curated by Alison Cooley and Jayne Wilkinson and presented by the Blackwood Gallery in the summer of 2017.
