The Parsnip

 

 

‘ I have not seen him for a while, maybe he has forgotten where his plot is’
As part of my residency with Common Ground Collective, I interviewed Barbara, an 80+ year old member of the Bradley Fold Community. She spent time with me (an hour) in the project space as I filmed our conversation from a shed placed in the gallery as I delved into the psychological and social phenomenon of renting and sharing an allotment. What transpired was a 2 minute video piece – an anecdote and ode to her story about a parsnip, that also dealt with aspects of mortality and hope. Viewers found this piece rather funny.
