Index

For his installation at the Meadow Gallery, Index, Gair Dunlop reflects his concerns with historical and political context through a research-based approach.

Index consists of a series of laminated plastic notices, of the sort used in horticultural labelling plants or for visitor instructions. These fragments of texts were taken from fundamental texts involved in the picturesque debate and included quotes from Richard Payne Knight (1750-1824), William Gilpin (1724-1804), Humphrey Repton (1752-1818), Uvedale Price (1747-1829), and French counter-revolutionary theorist Joseph De Maistre. These signs were strategically placed around the Meadow space to allow a flow of associated meanings and a juxtaposition of experiences. Acting as a set of instructions or as fragments of information, the texts for the signs question our relation to landscape and to nature.
