Artist and landscape designer Catherine Dee is cultivating a Parliament of Trees at Persistence Works. On show are installations of tiny living trees comprising landscape designs that may be commissioned free to non-profit organisations for planting out at the end of the exhibition. Dee will be in residence to offer public advice to individuals and groups on designing and planting tree places for gardens, streets, and open spaces. ‘Parliament’ refers to gallery visitor conversations and debates about trees, and also to the language of trees cultivated by the artist.
