The Back Garden Biennale
Saturday the 23rd of June 2012
17 Fairmile Avenue Edinburgh

This year the Suburban Pavilion opened its big wooden door and played the part as a gallery with white walls and a plinth in the corner. There was access to the back room through patio doors, the wee shed around the side of the house and the greenhouse added to the outdoors space. We played games, had our futures told, weary muscles were relaxed, films, installations and stories revealed themselves on walks around the garden while the barbecue sizzled and folks mingled.
