An English Garden
Southend, Uk
Landscape Design installation for Estuary Festival, on the extensive research and grafting of Atom Bomb roses by Gabriella Hirst. The circularity of the landscape merges with the army-grid of the roses, as a battlefield. The geometric shapes refer to the traditional English garden and formal garden tradition - in contract with the military research of the project. An English Garden collaborators: Cristina Morbi (landscape design), Samantha Whetton (publication design), Patricia Stadler (gardening), Southend Council. Photography by Anna Lukala. An English Garden was commissioned by Estuary 2021, The Old Waterworks and Metal Culture and was supported by Arts Council England
