by the edge of the sea, by the edge of the city

'Inside Lane' Lenzie, 2017 | 06.05-30.06.17

'Inside Lane', curated by Rosy Naylor

A two-month art engagement project funded by Sustrans Scotland and East Dunbartonshire Council, to create a series of temporary artworks across Lenzie.  Artists commissioned were Jacqueline Donachie, Deirdre Macleod, Nathalie Holbrook and City of Play. Works exhibited in the public spaces of Lenzie centre, Lenzie Moss and Strathkelvin Railway Path, with accompanying project newspaper.

'Inside Lane' represented an enquiry around the public space of Lenzie, bringing together a collection of artists' installations, temporary street interventions, writings, photography and conversations evolving over a two-month period, drawing upon transitions through Lenzie and its surrounding areas of Woodilee and Lenzie Moss. It connected up disparate, sometimes hidden, places and uses, inviting the public to think about their ways through their public space, relating to local resident, pedestrian, cyclist and car user.
