The Value of Mush

From 18–24 January, London-based performer Richard Layzell will be artist-in-residence at Stroud Valleys Artspace. Each day he will be roaming around one of Stroud’s car parks, revealing the hidden mysteries and biodiversities of these neglected places and releasing photos, videos and audio on SVA’s Instagram and Facebook feeds. Follow his daily adventures and learn about how Stroud’s very own mushy piles of leaves are part of a complex web of ecology, not just an inconvenient heap to be swept up. Layzell’s residency continues his sixteen-year relationship with SVA and is part of his project The Naming, in which he works with maverick environmentalist Kino Paxton to challenge the ways we distance ourselves from aspects of the natural world by categorising and naming things. Follow @LayzellPaxton on Facebook and @layzell_paxton on Instagram for daily updates of Layzell’s adventures, or visit thenaming.org to find out more about The Naming.
