About the Artwork

Made originally during my final year at Gray's School of Art for an interim show in 2013 at St Margaret's House in Edinburgh. The model and paintings are designed to hang between two pillars: the pillar within St Margaret's House gallery space and a custom built 'fake' pillar. It has since been exhibited in a couple different iterations since, having been installed against a wall with the fake pillar.

Additional Information

The model and paintings are designed to be installed between either two pillars (the fake, custom-built one provided, and one within the adoptee's space) or between a wall and the fake, custom-built pillar provided. The model would require dusting now and again. The paintings should not be touched or removed.
