The Great British Allotment

A chair that can no longer be sat on,

A tyre that can no longer stop a car,

A bathtub that fails to hold water,

A fence panel that didn’t fit,

A cone that’s wandered from the road,

A beer can that’s all out of Beer.

This exhibition piece focuses on the reuse of objects in British allotments. All of these items ready for retirement in their chosen Allotment to await the day they can truly no longer be used. The display will repurpose used items and show them having one last go at being an object with a job, although it almost certainly won’t be what they were originally created for. The show will have both physical pieces and photographic images, showing allotments that have adopted this attitude of reusing everything they possibly can.
