GARDENER’S MONOLOGUE (STUCK IN A SENTENCE)

I inspired this mural on the principle of the ‘garden-path- sentence’, a term used in literary theory to define a sentence that deliberately confuses the reader of the sentence, which you often have to read twice in order to understand. Ever since discovering this term, ‘The Gardener’ has become a recurring character in my practice. The persona of  The Gardener plays with the double-sided nature of language, often taking the viewer with her on an imaginary journey.
