Creating place within a space

Leith StructureS-21

This is completely subjective and completely personal to me but these to structures feel connected to me. By appearance they both have similarities and Its made me think of Nathan Coley’s work about the Lockerbie bomber. He was the court artist at the trial in the Netherlands and he was intrigued by the fact that a part of the Netherlands had become Scottish. It had been transposed onto another place. This could be an opportunity to transpose one place onto another within my own work. I’ve been fascinated with both of these locations, one for longer than the other but this could be a way to introduce a new way of thinking to my practice. Essentially projecting an existing place within another already existing space, creating a new place.
