The English Garden
The English Garden looks at constructed spaces which form in gardens within estates, country houses and botanical gardens. Pristine spaces which carry the idea of extreme beauty and elegance. Owned and inhabited by profoundly wealthy, authoritative and influential families. Their placement in society stems through their aristocratic, political and colonial roots. The highly composed nature of these spaces reflects their experience in the world. Looking at the relationship between power structures in society and how they manifest through a quintessential part of English culture, the garden.
