Paul Chaney

Paul Chaney is a self-taught artist and horticulturalist exploring agrarian futurism through long-term engagements with land and agricultural process. From 2004 to 2012 he lived entirely disconnected from public utilities in a self-built cabin and attempted to survive on a two-acre field. Since 2016 he has led End of the World Garden, an off-grid artists’ residency and research platform in a perennial forest garden. He is associate artist at Kestle Barton Gallery in Cornwall, where his ongoing project Lizard Exit Plan explores a post-collapse survival plan for the inhabitants of the Lizard Peninsula.
