It’s now just 2 weeks til Hidden Door Festival which naturally means that “shit just got real” and it’s officially “squeeky bum time”. The reason why I’ve been fairly absent from my blog of late is that I’ve been invited to make a new body of work for exhibition as part of the festival, and so, I’ve been buried away in my studio, busily working away…
Returning for its fourth edition, the non-profit and 100% volunteer-run multi arts festival will this year take place in the old Leith Theatre; with 10 days and nights of music, theatre, visual art, film and spoken word bringing the stunning venue back to life. Left derelict and decaying for 28 years, Hidden Door will provide the initial spark to get this art deco gem back up and running as a major Edinburgh arts venue and transform its empty spaces with the help of some of the best creative talent from Scotland and beyond.
My contribution to the festival will take the form of various interactive installations of models, paintings and photography, dotted around various nooks and crannies in the incredible, old Leith Theatre building. My main installation piece can be found in a room on the roof of the building, with access through the rear of the auditorium – where the bars will be!
The festival will be open from Friday 26th May to Sunday 4th June will be free to explore every day until 6pm, with tickets now on sale for the evening events, including live music from the likes of Anna Meredith and Idlewild!
