Jane King and Anne Duff @ Heathcote Museum & Gallery

Event Title: Edge of Centre: Through the Wall.
Participating Artists: Jane King and Anne Duff.

Heathcote Museum & Gallery,
58-60 Duncraig Road, Applecross.

Description: Old buildings have a presence that reflects their past. We read a building's architecture and the wear of the years on its skin and imagine how it lived, what it felt and saw.

It's like looking through the walls from the present to the past; pulling back layers of paint to reveal wallpaper or uncovering old newspapers hidden beneath wooden boards.

Jane King and Anne Duff have peered through the wall of an old corner shop in Willagee to another time; when the world was bigger and slower, when old social networks were localised, like small satellites stretching delicately out toward each other, connecting thinly, at random.

In this technological age it is no longer fantasy to be able to see through walls. New radar technology has been developed that will allow the viewer to peer through solid surfaces in real time with nothing more than a cell phone.

Today, networks are dense and far reaching.

privacy has become the fantasy.

Dates: 29 September 2012 to 4 November 2012.
Opening Times: Tues - Fri, 10-3pm; Sat-Sun, 12-4pm.
