Pollok House Install, 2020


This video was made to be part of a group exhibition at Pollok House, Glasgow. The video pans around each room whilst a narrator explains the process of installing all the paintings in the National Trust Property. For this video the paintings were each digitally edited out to make it appear as though I had shot this video prior to install; this, along with the narration was aimed at creating the illusion that whoever made the video had actually installed all the paintings themselves. The video was displayed on a monitor that was mounted on a pre-existing TV stand in the foyer.

As well as the video, a painting that had recently been removed from the house was replaced with a digitally printed version of the original.
