Kathryn Gray & Stuart Fallon @ Generator Projects 04.09.12 - pictures

To the Generator this evening for the opening of Kathryn Gray & Stuart Fallon - A portrait in absentia. I took a few photos and here they are:

A portrait in absentia began in 2002 when artist Stuart Fallon discovered an old diary in Tayside Recycling Centre in Dundee.

This chance find led to an extended letter correspondence with a stranger in Sydney, a relative of the diary’s author whose details were found therein. Fallon travelled across the world to meet her in 2008, and began collaborating with Kathryn Gray to document and share the storytelling around the diary.

This exhibition of the latest chapter of the work at GENERATORprojects represents a symbolic return of the project to Dundee, its point of origin, exactly 10 years since the discovery of the diary. The multi-media installation juxtaposes the dual-screen video with other elements, to portray the characters known and absent and the questions that bind them.
