An exhibition of photographs in the café

Myka Baum works predominantly in photography and investigates its ephemeral nature in relation to the 

environment. Light plays an integral role within the work, an ambiguity between the precision of photo-

graphic  apparatus and the structured randomness of the organic are at play. There is a fascination with 

cycles of transformation and an attempt to encapsulate natural phenomena through abstract processes 

lies at the heart of Myka’s practice. When encounteringMyka’s work the painstaking process is to an extent 

out of sight–the viewer is left with essentially an abstract image, leaving you to unravel the layers of

natural and mechanical reproduction.

Interventions throughout the farm

Margot Bannerman is a London based artist and teacher whose current work explores ways in which grow-

ing surfaces and structures can alter how urban spaces can be perceived and deployed. She is particularly 

interested in small-scale ‘greening interventions’ to encourage bio-diversity and suggest possibilities for 

how we might engage with shared spaces.

Sung-Hee Ahn graduated from Chelsea College of Art and was a research fellow at Goldsmiths College. 

She continues to research questions around public art and design at Kyung Won University in Seoul. 

Her art practice often revolves round temporary and semi-permanent outdoor installations in which 

planting and gardening are a focus. In this work Sung-Hee invites the visitor to join a ‘promenade’ to 

explore the ‘landscape’ of Freightliners.

Helen Griffiths recycles from sculpture that didn’t find a space to be, becoming hosts for other things 

to dwell. Her interest in using planting and readily available materials follows ‘permaculture’ principles.

Anna Hart makes temporary rearrangements within the everyday and is especially concerned with the 

small scale, the very local, and the unannounced. 

She is founder and organiser of AIR ( 

“I’m not sure that I want to play that game either’ is a reflection on happiness, being still and getting 

older. Text, objects and a short video will be developed during Try a Little Tenderness and exhibited 

in and around the pig pens.
