Olga Grotova - The Friendship Garden
This exhibition comprises new work produced as part of artist-in-residence Olga Grotova's ongoing practice-based research project, The Friendship Garden. This project explores the land cultivation practices of Soviet women and female resistance to the authoritarian state.
Throughout Grotova's residency – October 2022 to July 2023 – the artist has explored multiple aspects of gardening with various communities of allotment tenants, horticulturists, artists and thinkers, with a particular focus on the East European community and the Caribbean diaspora. Together, these participants explore and intensively consider caring cultures and their implications for anti-extractivism, resistance and solidarity.
