Allotments feature in Art Walk Porty 2018

August 23, 2018

FESTOON

 

Festoon is a walk inspired by historical fairground illuminations and explores our experience of urban darkness. It will take place after dark in and around Portobello.

 

Walking slowly in a line, 12 participants will carry portable, lighted frames around the darker spaces in Portobello - spaces that can be ‘lost’ after dark - creating a walking illumination. As the walk progresses, we will stop to create our own illuminations in some of these dark spaces.

 

Festoon is a walk, a performance and a participatory artwork. The walks will be documented and participants will be credited for their involvement.

 

Walk 1: Portobello to Telferton Allotments via Fishwives Causeway
Date: Friday 31 August 2018
Time: 9pm to 10pm
Meeting point: Promenade at Bath Street, opposite the Rowing Club.
End point: Western end of Promenade at King’s Road

 

Walk 2: Portobello town centre circuit and beach
Date: Friday 7 September 2018
Time: 9pm to 10pm
Meeting point: Promenade, at Bath Street, opposite the Rowing Club.
End point: Western end of Promenade at King’s Road

 

There are 12 places for participants, each of whom will carry a lightweight frame with festoon lights. However, everyone is welcome to join our procession and to take part in the walk.

 

If you would like to be one of the participants (who will carry a lighted frame) please e-mail deirdre.macleod@hotmail.co.uk to receive further information.
