Untitled (Islands)
2017, dimensions: Variable
Materials: Re-used polypropylene sheeting and plastic, floating rope, ski-floats, local vegetation

As temporary drawings on the lake, the ‘islands’ offer imagined vantage points within concentric rings of lake / park / island. With their precarious equilibrium, wayward vegetation, possibly toxic buoyancy, there is an ambivalent proposal suggesting adaptation, amelioration, anxiety and pleasure. Bannerman’s practice explores how found spaces and structures, might be co-opted and re-deployed for growing or cultivation, drawing on overlaps between the social and organic within the context of environmental concerns.
