Andry Street Year 2
The theme for the Second Year, was experiment. We blessed the Solitary Gardens with an event that also celebrated the release of Albert Woodfox- the last member of the Angola 3 to be released and Herman Wallace’s closest comrade. At the Blessing we heard from Woodfox, Malik Rahim, Nana Sula, jackie sumell and several others. It was truly a blessing. We also revealed the second iteration of Solitary Gardens, made from wood and rope. We used weed barrier to illustrate the contents of the cell (bed/ desk/ toilet-sink combo) a hole-punch hearts for the plants our Solitary Gardener’s chose.
In the images below you can see the layout of the weed barrier and how nature overpowers the prison-cell-turned-garden bed inspiring us to imagine a landscape with out them.
