Funny how things link up over time …
Today I re-visited a derelict space in the centre of Brighton as part of the Festival of Architecture 2009 and my on-going project, Woman with Watering Can – Planning Permission Reclined!.
I danced this very same space back in 2001, again as part of another long-term project entitled Makeshift Body, when the site was just a dusty, plant-less rubble field after the demolition of some large buildings. It served as a temporary parking space back then, and a nursery for the occasional juvenile seagull.
The now rather substantial site fencing had not been put up at that point, but then as now, a sign on the site reads: “New Townhouses coming here soon”.
