We are delighted to have been featured in the June edition of Lancashire Life magazine talking about our work and contribution to Mirador’s “Behind The Wall” exhibition at Lancaster Museum. This is the lovely article by the Sue Riley featuring photos by Darren Andrews in the June issue of Lancashire Life about our recent collaboration with Mirador and six other artists on the Behind The Wall exhibition at Lancaster Museum. The exhibition looked at the last 150 years of a heritage site now used by Standfast, once a wagon works, WW1 billets and WW1 internment camp. It was lovely working with the Mirador team and Standfast & Barracks print works in Lancaster and exhibiting beside Michael Brennan Wood, Darren Andrews, Carolyn Bartlett, Katie Duxbury, Jon Randall and Adam Clarke. Our four legged pals will appreciate that even Coco and Beanie got a mention!
The city of Seoul is always under construction so South Korean artist Choi Jeong-Hwa has created a shielding screen for a building under construction. Jeong-Hwa used 1000 brightly coloured recycled doors to create a screen for a 10-storey building, at the same time turning it into a visual delight. The artist felt that by using discarded doors in the installation he could retain something of the memories and the daily routines that these doors once were party to. He says: “There were lives that used to pass through those doors.” 1000 Doors is also a means to engage the greater city population on the possibility of making “normal” things appear extraordinary.
Above is a selection of some of his wonderful installations from around the world.
