Join Liverpool Biennial’s Education Curator Polly Brannan for a tour of Mohamed Bourouissa’s Resilience Garden.

For Liverpool Biennial 2018, artist Mohamed Bourouissa is working with the local community, gardeners, school pupils, teachers and artists to create a new garden and space of ‘resilience’. The project is inspired by a garden the artist encountered in Blida, Algeria, made by a patient of the psychoanalyst and writer Frantz Fanon. Fanon’s patient underwent occupational therapy through gardening, reflecting the organisation of his mental space in the structure of his garden. Bourouissa will create a similar garden in collaboration with Kingsley Community School, working with the local community, gardeners, school pupils, teachers and artists.
