Victoria Clare Bernie: A Cinematic Garden (2003)
Victoria Clare Bernie is a cinematographer, painter and draughtsman. Her work centres on the twin concerns of nature and vision, and relates specifically to degrees of artifice. 'A Cinematic Garden' is a project which created a digital video garden for Mount Stuart, exhibited together with a selection of recently completed film-work. This new garden was designed in response to the topography, climate and genealogy of the gardens at Mount Stuart. Playing on a continuous loop 'A Cinematic Garden' introduced the garden visit with a series of other landscapes, informed by and constructed from the landscape of Scotland.
