we are going to live such lives
The starting point for this installation is a postcard that I was sent as a child by my grandmother. A giant print, a group painting, a mound built in the middle of the gallery and a film made of the painting of the postcard's image are the installation's main components. It was shown at the Cooper Gallery Dundee as part of the MFA (Art, Society and Publics) Show, 2014.
