gardening histories

This is family outing and an archeological walk. There is weighing, digging, touching and (re)digesting of histories, secrets and bodies that need to be remembered to be forgotten to be remembered. A permeable history through the roots and leaves and trunks and flowers and soil. Joined by unexpected guests from the ex-future we develop a gardening practice to help us imagine what that post colonial past might have been like.
