Part of an ongoing series of works by the artist exploring notions of place, nostalgia and aspiration in migration and diaspora. Golden (years) focused in part on lives of two immigrants who arrived to Britain from Hong Kong in the 1950s/1960s as they approached their 50th wedding anniversary. The work looked at leisure activities such as ballroom dancing and allotment tending as metaphors of 'cultivation' with the aim of examining 'tending' of memory and territory.
