Container Garden in Tkaronto

          “Container Garden in Tkaronto” is an ongoing series of work using the image of plants metaphorically to describe human struggles, emotions and mechanisms. Contemplating land and soil as the place that holds our stories of survival within a natural cycle of impermanence through life and death, it reflects on notions of displacement, relocation, settlement and coexistence. Like potted plants which are uprooted, contained, isolated and replanted elsewhere, I reflect on a childhood journey of emigration and loneliness.
