GROW  is the name of a new residency and sound work that brings together sound artist Robert Jarvis and the Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden.  From September 2006, Robert will work at the garden and in the surrounding community on the creation of a new sound installation to be exhibited from the following May as part of the garden’s 2007 public exhibition.  During the residency Robert will work with the theme of ‘Growth’ as a starting point for researching ideas for his composition.  Over the year he will learn about the plants and their histories as well as making recordings in the garden.  In the wider community, he will engage with local gardeners and also talk with people around the concept of human age in order to explore how these themes could be developed.  His proposition is that the final work will connect these areas of research to produce a piece that relates to both garden and life in general.

The project is funded by Arts Council England, the Performing Right Society Foundation and Mole Valley District Council.
