Back to the Garden

This was another spontaneous curating project while on holiday on the Isle of Mull. I created a curated ‘event’ by producing a poster advertising the project, “Back to the Garden”, which included Simon Starling, Bill Drummond, Mull Organics, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Nils Norman, Rachel Carson, Agnes Denes and Constantine Brancusi and would take place at Calgary Bay. The poster was handmade with available materials then posted on the public noticeboard in Dervaig, near Calgary Bay, Mull, Scotland. The noticeboard was full of other local event announcements. I pinned it up and left it there. It was a ‘phantom’ exhibition bringing together a list of artists/people/contexts to create a project which physically didn’t exist but did exist as a public conceptual idea. People would see and read it in the context of local information, its their choice to ‘see’ it, if they ‘get’ the references.
