Once more, with feeling? Site-specific interventions at Traquair House in the context of an expanded print practice

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

This essay contextualises the exhibition 'Reflective Histories - Contemporary Art Interventions at Traquair House'. The exhibition consisted of site-specific artistic interventions at the historic house of Traquair in the Scottish Borders, a project organised by Edinburgh Printmakers, the word-renowned print workshop and arts organisation in Edinburgh. The project and catalogue were funded by The National Lottery (through Creative Scotland).
The participating artists were: Photographer and installation artist Calum Colvin, book artist Helen Douglas, book and graphic artist David Faithfull, printmaker/sculptor Lesley Logue, video artist Rachel Maclean, printmaker/installation artist Nicola Murray, sculptor Duncan Robertson. In addition to considering the work of each artist within the history of Traquair and an expanded notion of print, the essay also sites the project in relation to current ideas of materiality, heritage, history and site-specificity.
