I feel a bit daft for not mentioning this earlier because it finishes tomorrow (Sunday 15 June).
Behind Closed Doors were given an area of rough ground just behind the Custard Factory and on it they’ve installed a couple of shipping containers and (in my prosaic language) done something arty.Â In their (more betterer) words The Secret Garden is:
Reflecting on the regeneration of the surrounding industrial landscape, the familiar and iconic image of the shipping container has been transformed into an art object as a strategy for an encounter exploring function, transformation and fictional narrative.
Behind Closed Doors have been documenting the whole thing on their website, which features a few time-lapse videos and some of Pete Ashton’s photos.
They’re wrapping things up with a closing BBQ at 4pm and promise sun, sounds and sausages.Â If you go down you’re encouraged to take a bottle.
