Through the contrasting lenses of Riddley Walker and the quest for a perfect tomato, Feral Practice explores how Iron Age versus Space Age food production impacts on access, connection and biodiversity.
An installation by Feral Practice and Anna Chrystal Stephens explores the migratory histories of plants, historical and current food culture, and polarised horticultural practices, opening up a discussion around the power and value of wild and cultivated plants. In the screening room is Feral Practice’s 2020 film Sum Tym Bytin Sum Tyms Bit, which draws resonance between themes of power, fragility and exploitation in Kent’s landscapes.
Feral Practice and Anna Chrystal Stephens: Sometimes Biting, Sometimes Bit.
What we eat infuses our senses, becomes our bodies, connects times and changes places. Agriculture shapes worlds and determines the value and survival of species. Feral Practice and Anna Chrystal Stephens explore the migratory histories of plants, historical and current food culture, and polarised horticultural practices, opening up a discussion around how we eat now.
