Join us and artist Corinne Silva to celebrate the opening of her solo show Garden State.
Coinciding with this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and London Festival of Architecture, Garden State offers an unexpected view on gardening. The show comprises photographic and sound installations exploring Israel’s suburban gardens, parks and public places. Silva encourages visitors to view gardening not simply as the act of nurturing a plot of land, but as something potentially far more sinister: a tool used in aggressive state expansion, territory marking and occupation.
To coincide with the exhibition Smallworld Urbanism has been commissioned by The Mosaic Rooms to create a sustainable pop-up permaculture garden to highlight the power of gardening as a positive force for social activism. Come celebrate the opening of both with drinks and nibbles. Places limited, RSVP essential: firstname.lastname@example.org
Garden State is co-produced by Ffotogallery, Cardiff, The Mosaic Rooms, London, and UAL Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC), London College of Communication, and supported by the Arts Council of Wales, A.M. Qattan Foundation and University of the Arts London.
