As part of a public art project in Glasgow in 2002, Graham Fagen bought the right to name a new species of rose, which was to be planted in the Royston area. A competition to name the rose was them held within the community. Where The Heart Is was the winning entry.
During the process the artist was intrigued by the work of the nursery where the rose was grown. At least 8 years development is needed to produce a new rose. 'Manufactured nature', Fagen realised.
The real Where The Heart Is was planted in the public spaces and private gardens of Royston. Fagen decided to make a rose bush of his own, in bronze. This sculpture (shown at Tate Britain in 2004) became symbolic of the social process of the public art project.
Rose Carries some of that history. Each cast is unique, with no two the same.
