Lotte Fisher II

For the last week, The Hidden Door Festival has been running in Edinburgh. This festival seeks out amazing unused spaces and brings them to life with art, theatre and music performances. This year it was in The Old Leith Theatre an incredible art deco, lost gem that has been unused for almost three decades. All spaces were used including the toilets.

It was good to catch up with Lotte Fisher's work, Lotte graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design two years ago.

For hidden door Lotte focused on the city of Islador, a city of huge variety and intrigue, with be hills, rivers, weird animals of every kind, buildings small and large, and things peeking out from unexpected places. She aims to reflect the mélange of creatures and architectural styles present in our earthly modern-day cities as well as in those of Tenzing. Tenzing is a world of strange creatures, structures and landscapes which is being slowly 'discovered' by Lotte Fisher’s alter ego, the pioneering explorer, Freeman MackInesker.
This world has it’s own language and power structures and is almost as incomprehensible to Freeman as it is to us.
