Modus Operandi

A Grand Tour

I propose to make an artist’s film/documentary using the footage created from filming a journey from Kelso to Venice for the 2007 Biennale and then to return to Kelso via Kassel for Documenta 12 and Munster for Skulptur Projekte Munster 07.

I intend to undertake this journey in my own vehicle (VW Caravelle). The vehicle will be fuelled with bio-diesel. The vehicle will be converted in Kelso to accommodate a deep fat fryer. The deep-frying of battered Mars Bars, Kelsae Onion Rings and local produce specific to the locations of visit would constitute some kind of cultural exchange on national and local levels (and could be sold to supliment the travel budget). The foodstuffs would be served on printed-paper featuring an explanation of the project’s purpose. The bio-diesel will be produced through the recycling of the waste vegetable oil from the production of the delicacies.

The food will be served in lay-bys, at service stations and in market squares always in the proximity of cultural tourism but never directly in view of locations attracting cultural tourism or with the intention of engaging with its clientele.

Artist's CVs

They vary horribly in format and are often works of utter fiction. Hurrah for the Artist's CV - stickin' it to the man with it's non-conformist swagger!

Guilt Edged.


This grainy image taken with a mobile phone camera records an instance of trade via interstice. Through the process of bartering within a social scenario I was able to obtain this football. The object was later to be involved in a number of impromptu games and studio based discussions where its transubstantiation was mooted. It is my belief that by… Continue
