A Sunken Garden
Lyndon Blue & Tiyan Baker
8 October – 31 October 2021

A Sunken Garden is a show about wandering, foraging and perceiving. It’s a show about a garden as a place where knowledge is sown, materialised and maintained.

For Lyndon Blue, hand-weeding proposes itself as a healthy obsession, a meditative ecological act, a confusing metaphor and a way of artmaking through removal. The allure of foraged copper leads to a foray into the strange art of dowsing and unexpected ancestral discoveries.   

For Tiyan Baker, bringing together plant life, language and storytelling is a way to invoke the power and possibility of traditional Bidayǔh knowledge.
