Hidden Gardens, Tramway, Glasgow, UK
Bradley was commissioned by leading public art company nva, to conceive a weekend festival for the three faiths celebrating ‘festivals of light’ – Advent, Diwali, Hannukah. Central to Bradley’s concept was the creation of the world’s largest dried flower garland. Symbolically, the 100,000 flowers for this were grown by local communities around Tramway through the preceding summer thus capturing Glasgow’s long days of light. These were then harvested and woven into the garland for the darkest time of year when the festivals of light occur. Flower related performative events curated by Bradley and Bill Gee orbited the garland. 5000 people experienced the festival.
