MFA Contemporary Art Theory

Having just written 12,000 of them, I have few words to say at the moment.

Perhaps once you’ve read it, I’ll have thought of one.

Picture Postcard

A blog post in which I question representation and relate tourism to a work of art.

I went to Paris in 2010. I was in 2nd year at art school and hadn’t yet discovered Ceal Floyer or scrutinised An Oak Tree. I was more interested in purchasing a beret and wearing it to saunter around the Pompidou, with a sophisticated belonging of course. And then I came back to Dundee and the 31st of the month arrived as it often did, and with it, the time to discard a pair of scratchy contact lenses for fresh ones.

Think of what they had seen, though. An entire trip, a life moment. Alas, no. It could not be done.

I spent the next year or so in the studio exploring this phenomenon of stowing nostalgia in objects. But I think I may have overplayed the role of irrational sentiment.

“Feel sick. But in that good way (I think), things are happening (I think)”

And they did happen. It’s exactly a year since I started this blog. My first post was a tentative stare at the year ahead.

A nice bow was put on 2014 when I found out I’d been accepted for an internship at Deveron Arts for the first three months of the new year.
