Tending to Nature

Christine Mackey's Tending to Nature was developed on location for Drawing Spaces at Braco de Prata, a former military arms factory in Lisbon that has been converted into an arts centre. Combining drawing, sound, historical documentation and photographic stills, the work focused on a small public intervention on the grounds of the factory, and used gardening as a process for rejuvenating abandoned sites whilst exploring their history.
