How’s The Ghost? 2009-10
With Mitch Miller / An Tobar Mull / Market Gallery Glasgow
How’s The Ghost? is an anagram of “The Ghost Show”, a feature-length documentary in the making by Mitch Miller. It is also the title of a collaborative show by Mitch and I, which was also expanded on at An Tobar in the isle of Mull.
I’d like to add to this page over time so it becomes an archive of the entire show, but there’s plenty to listen and look at right now.
Using the documentary as a starting point, Market Gallery in Glasgow invited Mitch and I to make work for this show and we responded with stories, installations, drawings, films, a publication and an antique hook-a-duck stall as the centrepiece of the work which played this short story (35mins):-
The films produced are in my film section as the “Unfairground” series and we had some terrific footage donated by the Pinder family through Scottish Screen and I made a special 45 minute version of the work when the show was installed at An Tobar Gallery on the isle of Mull. Special thanks to Karine Polwart who let me remix some of her voice for the work.
