Derek Jarman created a garden at his house, Prospect Cottage, in the1980's and 90's. The exhibition relates his love of gardening and the part it played in his life and work. On display are paintings and sculptures from throughout his career.
He bought bought Prospect Cottage, a fisherman's shack on the beach at Dungeness for £32,000. After being diagnosed with HIV in 1986 one of his aims was to start a garden.
If you have not been to see the garden it is a special and strange place with the shingle, wind, the horizon and the noise from the nuclear power station. Either go there before or after seeing the exhibition.
