Spanning sculpture, video-as-readymade, readymades-as-sculpture, photography and a site-specific sculpture/installation, the show brought together works that address collaboration by using the fertile metaphor of the garden, touching upon the urgency of creation and the making of new bonds in an arid and stilted atmosphere:
“In the shadow of a nuclear station in Dungeness, England sits Derek Jarman’s meditative and arid garden. Poking out of the flint surface, its irises, plants and rusty crosses made from wrenches, is a far cry from the green monochrome of Bree Van de Kampf ’s perfectly tended lawns that adorn Wisteria Lane.”**
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
