Gemma Cairney visits Cosey Fanni Tutti from Throbbing Gristle in her garden in Norfolk.

Gemma Cairney continues The Leisure Society, a new series interviewing cultural icons, tastemakers, artists and musicians about their pastimes, hobbies, collections and loves beyond what they are known for. This week Gemma visits the home of Cosey Fanni Tutti, performer from avant-garde group Throbbing Gristle, whose art and music inspired a generation and rocked the establishment - to talk about her passion for gardening. As well as a guided tour around her garden, Cosey discusses her background in stripping, sexual politics how she was hired to dance in Sylvester's video for Mighty Real, and how she maintained her resilience in the face of adversity.
