The Curious Moaning of Kenfig Burrows represents the culmination of a five-year practice based research project. Through a series of 41 photographic works, a 3,500 word text and a methodology, the project explores ways in which the botanical, cultural, political, social and economic legacies of Victorian privilege and wealth are fetishised or neutralised, through the politics and protocols of heritage culture. History –and historical research methods – are understood as the incomplete outcomes of arbitrary, subjective and ideologically entrenched processes of accessioning and deaccessioning, within the institution and beyond.
