An attempt at exhausting a place (in Edinburgh)

4 – 31  August 2014

 

In 1974 Georges Perec wrote the book An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris, in which he spent three days in a cafe describing what he could see and hear. Alice Finbow, a London-based filmmaker and photographer, will take on Perec’s task: a woman in a different town and a different century, but with the same romantic inquiry into the image of the artist and his/her relationship with the world.

Alice will sit in The Manna House for a week, observing the daily goings-on.  Her observations will be displayed on The Manna House’s wall, as drawings, photographs, recorded texts and other visual findings.

Residency, 4-10 August; artwork display, 11-31 August 2014
