  • Transplant

    Transplant is a site-specific installation that embeds cutting from a native Hawaiian hibiscus into a condensed Cumbrian landscape of stones, earth and moss collected on site at the Merz Barn, Cylinders Estate (Lakes District, UK). By introducing a subtropical shrub to a temperate environment where it will perish without human intervention, the piece challenges notions of immersion, diversity, monoculture and preservation of living cultures.
