Tony Heywood and Alison Condie describe their work as 'horticultural installation art'.


Their area of interest principally concerns new ways of engaging with and representing landscape and nature

The combination of Heywood’s background in horticulture and anthropology and Condie’s in botany and zoology has resulted in the formulation of a unique series of art works, which are often hard to classify. Their practice crosses many genres including land art, sculpture, horticulture, painting, video and performance and individual works can often synthesize elements from all of these disciplines.

This courtyard installation takes the form of a magical-realist landscape portrait of Hastings. The artistic duo will create a fantastical, hybrid world where sculpted, cartoonesque land and seascapes collide with a carefully constructed botanical ecosystem. Their gardens are a collaboration with nature where the real and the synthetic collide, revealing a hybrid landscape of visual excess.
