“Performing Community Garden is a performative installation, including participation by members of the community. The artist will stand in a public space wearing a dress that carries a number of plants. Each plant will have the name of a person. The names belong to mostly civilians who were lost or displaced through violent situations. Khadija Baker will also add the names of survivors who have recently arrived in Canada. The artist will position her body in a highly visible public space, and invite people to take a plant. Each person she gives a plant to, she will tell them a story about the name attached to that plant.
