Statement

Anna Garrett (b. 1993, UK) adopts a methodology of drawing as ecological activism. She is concerned with the importance of wildness in the in-between patches and ecotone of urban/suburban environments. Her research interests are towards an ecofeminist approach to more passive notions of rewilding.Through entomological observations within living ecosystems (and of extinct insect pollinator species) the work traverses the realm of art and science, as well as symbiosis between plant, insect and human. Playing the role of amateur entomologist, Anna combines an active engagement of specific site, species and community in context with wider ecological crisis. She focuses the ‘slow gaze’ of drawing as method to connect to multi-species relationships, and aliveness itself in an entangled, biodiverse web.
