德里克-賈曼啟發的 "口袋公園 "在曼徹斯特開放

曼徹斯特藝術館的永久空間是為了 "補充 "這位LGBT活動家在該場所的作品展覽,該市議會說。

他說,創建這個空間是一群50歲以上的志願者的 "愛心勞動"。

這位電影製片人還為Pet Shop Boys、Sex Pistols和The Smiths導演了流行視頻,1994年死於與艾滋病有關的併發症,年僅52歲。

議會發言人說,該公園是畫廊和來自LGBT基金會老年人項目 "自豪老齡化 "的志願者之間 "獨特合作 "的結果。

他說,這個 "綠色手指小組 "與藝術家朱麗葉-戴維-德魯法亞德、外部建築公司的景觀設計師、RHS布里奇沃特的社區團隊、花園設計師萊昂-戴維斯以及畫廊的一位館長合作,共同開發設計。

他說,該設計包括 "一些創新的城市解決方案,以應對氣候變化的影響",包括可持續的花盆和一個循環利用雨水來澆灌植物的水景。

他補充說,所使用的植物 "都是在曼徹斯特市中心的城市環境中茁壯成長的植物,同時也有一些志願園丁自己最喜歡的植物"。

"他說:"志願者之間形成了一些終身的友誼,[而且]我的精神健康和自我價值也得到了提高。

老有所為基金會經理勞里-羅伯茨(Lawrie Roberts)說,基金會很高興 "通過這個項目慶祝賈曼的遺產和與曼徹斯特的歷史聯繫,並在市中心創造了這個奇妙的新綠地供大家使用和享受"。

"他補充說:"我們都知道,園丁的工作永遠不會結束,現在花園已經完工,我們的志願者將繼續留下來幫助維護花園的四季。

議員Luthfur Rahman說,志願者們 "做了一項了不起的工作,在曼徹斯特最受歡迎的旅遊景點之一的門口創造了一片綠色寧靜的綠洲"。


The permanent space at Manchester Art Gallery was devised to "complement" a showing of the LGBT activist's work at the venue, the city's council said.

He said creating it had been a "labour of love" for a group of volunteers who are all over the age of 50.

The filmmaker, who also directed pop videos for the Pet Shop Boys, the Sex Pistols and The Smiths, died of Aids-related complications in 1994, aged 52.

The council spokesman said the park was the result of a "unique partnership" between the gallery and volunteers from Pride in Ageing, the LGBT Foundation's programme for older people.

He said the "green-fingered group" worked with artist Juliet David-Drufayard, landscape architects from Exterior Architecture, the community team at RHS Bridgewater, garden designer Leon Davis, and a gallery curator to develop the design.

He said it included a "number of innovative urban solutions to combat the effects of climate change" including sustainable planters and a water feature which reuses rainwater to water the plants.

He added that the flora used had "all been chosen as plants that will thrive in the urban environment of city centre Manchester, as well as featuring some of the volunteer gardeners' own favourite plants".

"Some lifelong friendships have formed between the volunteers [and] my mental wellbeing and my self-worth have improved as well," he said.

Pride in Ageing manager Lawrie Roberts said the foundation was delighted to be celebrating Jarman's "legacy and historic links to Manchester through this project and to have created this fantastic new green space in the city centre for everyone to use and enjoy".

"As we all know, a gardener's job is never done, and now the garden is finished, our volunteers will be staying on to help maintain the garden through the seasons," he added.

Councillor Luthfur Rahman said the volunteers had "done an amazing job in creating an oasis of green tranquillity on the doorstep of what is one of Manchester's most popular visitor attractions".
