The skies lighten in the east, the dawn chorus erupts, the Nightingales serenade. It’s the 30 May 2021 and we’re in the heart of the scrubland at Knepp Estate. Before my eyes, something very powerful happens. Maria da Luz Ghoumrassi (pictured) responds to this extraordinary environment, captured in film by Olga Saavedra Montes de Oca, which premiered at The Depot, Lewes, 29 November 2021. This formed part of my Knepp Residency.
