GARDEN, 2017



Garden by Alima Lee begins with melody and poetry, as a voice whispers ‘farewell the flower that did not sprout.’ Deeply meditative, the video functions as an emotional and unfiltered window on the daily life of a black woman, as she goes along with her daily rituals in order to overcome anxiety and depression.

Seemingly mundane, tasks such as daily skin care, eating and dancing become essential to her survival. While the protagonist struggles and faces challenges, she persists and overcomes, thriving and growing, offering hope.
