THE TIDAL GARDENER
I'm interested in the particular places that do not just offer spatial framing, ambience representations or references. With this project I've looked for a specific site that carries an event. Instead of the ambient spaces, I'm looking for the unavoidable event that places can offer.
Like the gardener in her garden, the Tidal Gardener in the riverbed must accept the tidal forces and work with the pressures of the environment. In my performance she cultivates the very edge of the water line of River Thames by Battersea Bridge, by pulling a line of fabric so it always is aligned with the water line, continuing this task from flood to ebb.
