Shetland and St Petersburg, Russia, 2007
Domestic Dialogues, with Susan Timmins, was a participatory project linking people in Shetland and St Petersburg, Russia through gift-giving and exchange. It comprised three events which took place in 2007 at 1) The New Art Studio, Mungies Waater, Papal, Burra Isle in Shetland; 2) Dialogi, the 8th International Biennale of Contemporary Art at the Manezh Central Exhibition Hall in St Petersburg, Russia; 3) The Claesline Gallery, The Smuggins, Burra Isle, Shetland. In each location visitors were invited to make a felt rose and to write a message on a special tag about their experience of laundry. Supported by Hi-Arts and Shetland Community Arts Development individual artists’ grants.
