The Hanging Gardens in the news


Today’s Metro in the Sydney Morning Herald has a feature on Underbelly, which includes a little on The Hanging Gardens and a few quotes from our good selves. You can read the full article online here



Do you have a potted friend that means something special to you? Perhaps a hanging succulent that’s followed you from one home to the next? Would you like your plant’s story to be part of a new project about these often overlooked neighbours? … If you also live in or around Redfern (in Sydney’s Inner West) then we’d love to hear from you.

Our latest undertaking, The Hanging Gardens & Other Tales, is a site-specific installation at CarriageWorks made up of pot plants on loan from local residents, produced in collaboration with Nobody as part of the Underbelly Public Arts Lab + Festival. Your green friends can be delivered from June 30th onwards, and will be carefully looked after until the 14th of July when they can return home. We’d also like each plant to be accompanied by a short letter of introduction from its owner, sharing a little something of its history or personal significance to you (handwritten notes are most welcome).

If you are interested or have any questions please email: hanginggardens@makeshift.com.au
