HEAVENS!

Serra Tansel

 

Heavens! is Serra Tansel's video work produced during her residency inside former air-raid shelter tunnels in Clapham. 

These subterranean tunnels are currently rented by Growing Underground, an urban farm growing micro herbs under LED lights. The tunnels' history is charged with 8,000 people being pushed down there during the war. They now shelter micro herbs in the midst of an environmental collapse. 

Serra also started working for Growing Underground sampling micro herbs in supermarkets. Heavens! is constructed around a real event, a homeless person asking her 'Will I go to heaven if I eat these herbs?' in Planet Organic.
