There is a growing discrepancy between land and territory, a widening gap that reveals tensions between our need for territory and our subtle co-existence (and lack thereof) with the land in which conflict for territory takes place. The Rondebosch Gardens is a case in hand. Home to the critically endangered Cape Flats Sand Fynbos, it is also proposed as a home in a different sense. [KS1] The lack of available territory [KS2] in Cape Town has opened the Common up to land claims by groups such as Isandla which are equally valid. Perhaps it is that a lack of what Harrison describes as “the vocation of care[KS3] ” that is contributing to the widening gap between land and territory (insert footnote). [KS4] In exercising the performative installation The Common Garden, it is proposed that the act of caring is taken to Court quite literally, where one uprooted square meter of the Rondebosch Common is installed within the judicial space – that of Cape Town’s High Court – in a conversation on examining the link between Land and Territory.

install The Common Garden at the High Court in Cape Town for the duration of the GIPCA LAND event and hope to engage in conversations emerging from the GIPCA symposium at Hiddingh Campus. Accompanied by a paper[KS5] presented in collaboration with the three Common Garden artists Elgin Rust, Katherine Spindler and Claire Jorgensen, the project will offer GIPCA attendees the opportunity to visit particular sites? where many land issues have been and are debated and encourage coversation around the process of practise-led research as a means to examining conflicts between land and territory. Proposed outputs include a week-long installation, with the possibility of a permanent installation at the Cape Town High Court, a paper examining the project as practise-led research to be presented at the GIPCA LAND symposium [KS6] and an online [KS7] catalogue of the project with an introduction from Ashraf Jamal[KS8] , available from the GIPCA website[KS9] .
