At HERE + NOW we are excited to have been invited to curate a temporary participatory installation and evening of short film screenings as part of Hidden Door Festival in May 2015. We'll be exhibiting a visually dynamic hand-crafted installation attendees can add their personal reflections to plus projected films during the day and evening of Friday 29 May within the Hidden Door Cinema Space.
On Monday there was not only good news - that Hidden Door has been officially given the go-ahead to use the currently vacant Kings Stables Road buildings for the festival - but we also got a sneak peek of the venue!
There's something always so interesting about buildings which have laid dormant and under-used for a period of time. Monday was no exception and it was great to have the doors unlocked to a series of interesting spaces, from the 'peely paint room' to the large warehouse like hanger. I even stumbled across a newspaper from 2006, which must have lain undisturbed on the dusty floor for almost a decade.
Great to get a look at the triple garage space with will become the Hidden Door Cinema too and where we will be exhibiting our films and installation - all along a theme of connection to place and sharing of place-specific memories and stories. Make sure you come and take a look in May! More details will be coming soon.
