A flower head of patterned seeds is carefully separated, documented, and assigned a recipient. Then they are sent off, dispersed somehow collectively. What I enjoyed most about this process was celebrating a beauty in togetherness alongside an equal beauty in individuality. A theme for 2020 as we found ourselves all alone, all together.
The final artwork is a large drawing of each seed given the recipient’s name, accompanied by a booklet of photographs of the resulting flowers; evidencing the diversity of people and their growing spaces so treasured during the lockdowns of 2020.
Beginning with documenting the shoes of myself, my daughter and my mother. I have come
to realise that it is not unusual to keep shoes which can’t be worn, perhaps too old, too
small, too uncomfortable, too valuable or too nostalgic. I am slowly gathering a collection of
these with the aim to create a larger archive.
