Roger Lougher and Anne-Mie Melis have been collaborating for the g39 UNIT(e) programme (2017, Cardiff). They have researched growing vegetables in the unnatural habitat of the gallery space and cultivated chicory in the darkness of one of the storage cupboards. This process was shared with the public through performance, talks, food and art events at g39. The artists are interested in how we live within our environment and the possibility of this being done in a sustainable way. What is the ecological impact of contemporary society on the natural environment and how is this framed philosophically and represented in art?
