LOVE

9_The BECKONING HAND_filmstills_2012

LOVE is a body of work that marks the culmination of a two year research project into Dundee’s Tayside House, over two years while is was being dismantled. Employing photography, Super 8 film and video, LOVE uses repetition to create a fantasy of a soon-to-be-gone brutalist landmark. In this work architecture is viewed as sculpture and passing time is represented by an ever increasing emptiness.

The research project, which was initially funded by DVAA in 2010, set to explore the brutalist structure itself, as well as the Utopian ideals that fuelled its design and to examine the later embarrassment of the building as outdated and ugly.
