Artist in Residence: Tara Douglas

Tara Douglas
New Zealand

In my hometown Christchurch in New Zealand, the city has changed following the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. There is a lot of demolition and construction, and the city is dominated by concrete and rubble. Many buildings and spaces are abandoned for safety, and are overgrown with plants.
Similarly in Onishi many spaces are overgrown with plants, but for different reasons. i have been inspired by the natural beauty of Onishi, the abundance of the lush, green environment. This installation is based on the Kuzu plant seen in Onishi.
