In September I gave an artist talk for the Glasgow School of Art Exhibitions department about my latest work, Port Cendres. The audio and the presentation were recorded so that I can now share it for anyone who couldn't make it or would like to hear it again. Please click the video on the bottom left.
A short note about the work and the talk:
"After the fire at The Glasgow School of Art on 23rd May 2014, I heard that Charles Rennie Mackintosh's last wish was to have his ashes scattered at Port Vendres in France. It was here Mackintosh and his wife Margaret Macdonald spent what is thought to have been their happiest years together. Some claim Mackintosh's last wish was never fulfilled, while other accounts suggest that Margaret did bring his remains back to Port Vendres after his death in 1928. In August 2014, my fascination with this story spurred me to go to Port Vendres myself to scatter ashes from the Mackintosh Building in the sea. This is a talk about my journey and what came of it."
