Artist Talk: Siân Davey

6:30pm, Fri 19 Apr 2024

Join British photographer Siân Davey as she talks through her transformation of The Photographers' Gallery's Soho Photography Quarter 

British photographer Siân Davey gives new insight into The Garden, an ongoing project she first started in 2020 with her son, Luke, in her own, then-abandoned garden. Now transformed, the outdoor space is alive with wildflowers, sound and people — and the current focus of The Photographers’ Gallery’s outdoor exhibition in Soho Photography Quarter.

Davey will give insight into her approach to the garden, both in the different methods taken to grow life, as well as a space to express and reflect experiences of trauma and joy, love and heartbreak, isolation and connection.

Siân Davey (b. 1964, Brighton) worked as a psychotherapist for 15 years before launching her career in photography in 2014. She draws on her experience in psychotherapy and as a mother to inform her practice. Her work is in a range of national and international collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, and The French National Collection, Paris. She lives and works in Dartington, Devon. The Garden will be her third book published by Trolley Books following Looking For Alice (2015) and Martha (2018).
