Mikala Dwyer

For the wBST Mikala Dwyer installs a hanging garden under the back patio at 135 Union Street. Of this work Dwyer comments:

Gardening for me is a peculiar practice, and one that necessarily involves a certain degree of violence in its implementation. For sometime I have been exploring this violence through my own dark impulses. This exploration has taken the form of vast indoor hanging gardens, where each plant is isolated in its own transparent microsphere. The ground is suspended, and the plants and their life force gently tortured into adapting to their new lonely worlds. However independent they seem in there isolation they still need care – very, very occasionally a little water is given.
