'Mirrored Edge' (Vertical/Horizontal)

2024

Mixed media, 6 meters x 4cm

A site-specific work developed for the garden at Hide Artist Retreat as part of THISS 2024
 


These lines disrupted, invaded and disturbed in quiet ways as you moved through the garden.

 

Referencing the long history of boundaries in this space, once the site of parish allotments and subject to the Enclosures Act, but surrounded by surviving common lands.

 

The work also considered the recent proposals to redraw electoral lines through this garden, which if enacted, would have disconnected poorer, urban communities, displacing them to a rural and far more affluent constituency - perhaps another form of enclosure of the land?
