HedgeWorld developed from the Work in Progress Show at RCA in January 2018. I have since been touring London communities, charities, and the streets of some of its most polluted areas.
As I have done so, I have woven squares of hedge out of green household fabrics, and asked locals and community members to join me in 'growing' the hedge.
Over the past few months we have created a collaborative hedgerow of over 200 woven pieces. This page documents the growing process. Important and sensitive conversations have taken place, recorded in the woven layers of each piece.
On 28th April I held an exhibition in the Hockney Gallery, RCA South Kensington, and invited each person who wove a square to come and join me for a 'garden party' inside the hedgerow, and it grew around the gallery walls in the process.
