Ashford Visual Arts and Architecture

Hidden Passages

Forming Ashford’s 4th annual Art & Architecture Festival, Hidden Passages created temporary art works along with a dynamic outdoor performance that drew together local groups in celebrating Ashford’s Hidden Passages and the town’s unique make up. It was a contemporary art project that looked to re-discover these forgotten spaces; their history and uses, and overlay that with the alternative definitions of the word passage, to create a series of site-specific art installations and interventions.

Rites (rights) of Passage – Documentary Installation
Beeping Bush conducted a youth-led filmmaking workshop for the festival in the summer of 2009, and produced a unique dual-screen digital media installation for the festival.

Created by young filmmakers, this work investigates what it is to be young. The concept, inspired by the concerns voiced by young people, not having any where to go and being moved on from hanging about in places, being seen as potential nuisance and 'up to no good'.

A Right of Way that runs through the heart of the town, where everyone has the right to be and to move through.

The film merges these elements and concerns with the screening venue - The Cage; Ashford's original gaol, created an unnerving experience adding the element of the potential criminalisation of youth.

Shot with dual cameras providing both simultaneous front and rear views, the original dual screening set up, placed the audience in the shoes of young people and the filmmakers.

Hidden Passages
Finale Performance Event Film Screening

Beeping Bush filmed the Finale Performance Event of the Ashford Visual Arts & Architecture Festival 2009, and produced a short documentation of the day’s activities, capturing all the energy and excitement that the live dance musical production generated.
