"The Potting Shed 2013-2014, which began in the summer of 2013, whereby I undertook a residency at Artlink Fort Dunree.
Phase 1: ‘Fortifying Beds’ explored the botanical diversification of plants found in this man-made environment that encompassed a new kind of rooted occupation. This led to the re-development of an existing building, which utilized materials found on-site.
Phase 2: The Potting Shed is based on the idea of a ‘living herbarium’ - a stimulating environment within which over the coming years, artists and activists will be invited to develop further projects onsite premised on the creative governance of the shed and its relationship to the environment and the ecology of local resources and communities. Archival material generated during the research phase on permanent loan to Artlink can be used as a pedagogical resource for visiting artist and local communities of interest."
