About the Edition

As part of a public art project in the Royston area of Glasgow 2002, Graham Fagen bought the right to name a new species of rose, which was to be planted in the area. A competition to name the rose was then held within the community. Where The Heart Is was the winning name.

During the process the artist was intrigued by the work at the nursery where the rose was grown. At least 8 years development is needed to produce a new rose. Manufactured nature, he realised.

The real Where The Heart Is was planted in the public spaces and private gardens of Royston. Fagen decided to make one of his own, in bronze, as a way of understanding this ‘man-made’ nature. This sculpture (which was shown in Edinburgh’s Fruitmarket Gallery in 2002 and at Tate Britain in 2004) became a type of symbol for the social process of the public art project.

Rose carries some of that history. It is a symbol associated with love and with giving, a visual sign of something precious.
