As part of the 2016 Look Again Festival of Visual Art and Design in Aberdeen, I have been commissioned to write new works as part of the Unreal Estate Aberdeen exhibition. Created by artist Gabrielle Reith, the Unreal Estate project invites visual artists, writers, school pupils and the general public to reflect on, and redress, Aberdeen City and its cultural and architectural heritage.
I have written five pieces about ten of the chosen Union Street buildings focused upon in the exhibition; these new works will be displayed in the Bon Accord Shopping Centre from the 28 April – 2 May, alongside new writing and music from Fitlike Records (Charley Buchan) and new artwork by ten visual artists based in the city. Find out more on the Unreal Estate website.
Be sure to check out the full Look Again programme on the main festival website, which includes events featuring Turner Prize winners Assemble and artist Doug Fishbone.
