As part of my course, we have to put on an exhibition. As a class we are putting on a 3 part exhibition revolving around the theme of ‘Place’.
The opening night is the 24th of March, at Out Of The Blue Drill Hall, but parts 2 and 3 open on the 31st of March and the 8th of April respectively, with a big and boozy closing event on the 11th of April.
You can find out a bit more on the Facebook Event page.
We are also struggling to fund the event, so if you have £1 to spare, we would really appreciate it if you could donate to our Kickstarter. We have put up a goal of £350, but this won’t even cover a 3rd of what it will cost us. Even if you don’t have anything to spare, if you could share the link for us, someone you know might be able to!
My own work, Postcards Home, deals with the issues of homesickness. Since moving to Edinburgh 3 years ago, I’ve been unable to go ‘home’, due to one thing or another, so I have a fair bit of experience with the subject. Postcards Home is a series of postcards of places in or around Edinburgh, but the note on the back explains thoughts, feelings or memories of home that the place evokes. These places are over 100 miles apart- yet can still fill you with the same feelings and sense of place. Come along to the exhibition to see the rest of the series.
If you’re in Edinburgh please pop along- It’s free!
