The idea for Companion Planting began through the need to meet outside. Inspiration gathered from walks on the allotment during lockdown evolved into the work in this exhibition.
From noticing how ivy finds its way through a fence, to describing the anatomy of a grass stem, Bridget Bailey and Margaret Proudfoot each bring their own observations, passions and processes to this exhibition.
Working together gives interesting insights into each other’s ways of making and thinking. From the roots of their original disciplines of millinery and sculpture, some intriguing work is germinating - from barbed wire sprouting shoots, to chain link fence ‘rewilding.’
