Offering an unexpected view on gardening, Garden State comprises photographic and sound installations exploring Israel’s suburban gardens, parks and public places. Silva explores what gardening might represent in the context of Israel’s contemporary colonisation of Palestinian territories through two bodies of work, Gardening the Suburbs andGarden State.
Toby Wiltshire will perform a special sound piece accompanying the exhibition, providing a new and evolving dimension to Silva’s work.
