The Green Backyard, Peterborough
9 JULY 2016 - 1 JULY 2017
Jessie Brennan has created a new, site-specific artwork for The Green Backyard (GBY). If This Were to Be Lost (2016) takes the form of a temporary, large-scale, sculptural installation (painted birch plywood on scaffold) in the garden. The phrase is adapted from an oral recording by a contributor to Inside The Green Backyard (Opportunity Area) – an outcome of the artist’s residency. If This Were to Be Lost raises many questions about what this community (and many others engaged in voluntary-run, urban green spaces) stands to lose if the land were to be lost to a proposed redevelopment.
