Detail of 'Floating Gardens'

In collaboration with Faiencerie Le Matet, Rosa has produced a collection of platters and dishes combining 18 century forms with her own organic seed vessels. These have been cultivated with regional plants and vegetables to create a scene of floating microcosms for the Maison patrimoniale de Barthete in France.

The exhibition also contains a series of interventions where Rosa has sown grass seed and plants in 19 century blue lids from Barthete's collection and infiltrated her own miniature vessels among the museums display of historical regional ware.

The exhibition is accompanied by an essay by Professor Jane Rendel, writer and Director of Architectural research at the Bartlett UCL.
