This work draws on the type of design common to beach huts that line the seafronts of Britain. It also evokes memories of garden sheds, typically found in middle-England back gardens.
The sound of cicadas emanates from the hut and at the top of the step ladder visitors are invited to peer through a hole in the door. The work is a homage to Emin’s Turkish Cypriot father who, according to the artist, is a fantastic gardner but a terrible carpenter. Emin’s father constructed the wooden trestle sitting amongst the potted plants.
