Common Threads, by Rahab

This garden meanders down along the disabled access and it is fully accessible and backs onto Lane Cove National Park.  Remnant Scribbly Gums punctuate the space, and views from through to the park are beautiful, especially after a recent fire to reduce ground refuse.

Rahab Bradford has woven found and foraged pieces of the bush, hessian and hemp through the fence to reflect the versus about creation from many different faith groups.  A stylised script from the Ancient versus has been uses to look like the scribbly gums have scribed them themselves.

The Truth is hidden within.BACKGROUND

Rahab is the character in the Old Testament who lied to help the Jews.  Meredith Kirton decided to collaborate on this installation as Rahab as her alter ego.  A published author of 7 books, acclaimed horticultural journalist and director of the not for profit organisation called FoodFaith, that aims to find “Common Ground” between faith groups through gardening and cooking, Meredith worked with a textile artist to translate “The Words” into “Common Threads”.
