All Heal (Valerian)

A gathering of works and voices, departing from Prospect Cottage, the garden and cottage of filmmaker and artist Derek Jarman (1942–1994). Jarman described his garden as modern nature, as the natural world against all odds, as a site where plants stand for an actively professed and undefeated refusal to obey. Botanical taxonomy captures every plant’s name, roots and history, but plants are also beings with a will of their own. Plants grow following their gardener’s itinerary, and yet never appear to fully comply.
All Heal (Valerian) brings together works that each in their own way relate to the possibility of the garden, of escaping life within the garden and to come to an understanding of what life is through gardening. 
With: Derk Alberts, Jonny Bruce, Ketih Collins, Moyra Davey, Elspeth Diederix, Amelia Groom, Sara Sejin Chang (Sara van der Heide), Derek Jarman, Alhena Katsof, Jort van der Laan, Charlotte Rooijackers, Werker Collective and many others.
