We are delighted to be taking part in the Artist Bookmakers’ Market as part of this years Art Walk Porty. The theme is Land Marks and we have prepared a fun flexagon book with some examples of how the sea marks the land with pictures of sand patterns.

A new book has been made in collaboration with photographer and printer Judith Rowan, called Forth Margins which will launch at the market. Woodblock prints take you on a journey along the Firth of Forth coastline.

We will also have new magazines from the Elsewhere, works from Edinburgh based Japanese illustrator Ryoko Tamura, local poet Roddy Shippin and work by Edinburgh and Elsewhere regulars Catherine Marshall and Elaine Robson.

Curriculum Vitae

Art Walk Porty 2018 – merry-go-round

‘Roll up, roll up to the merry-go-round ! Escape the humdrum ! Stories are written/erased, images blur/reappear. A ride that ends where it begins, where no journey is ever the same…’

Art Walk Porty 2018 – ‘Pleasure Ground’

30th August to 9th September

The merry-go-round is a favourite fairground ride for many, offering the chance to escape from the humdrum, albeit momentarily, into a different world. It is a place where you can travel, but without going anywhere. The ride just ends where it starts. But many things can happen riding the merry-go-round. Memories can fade away or be recollected, stories can be written or conversely erased, images can blur, fade and reappear all within a matter of moments. The ride is repeated but different details appear, other moments matter, new thoughts occur.

The artists collaborating on this project are :

Catherine Marshall is an artist and writer based in Edinburgh. She studied Fine Art Photography at Glasgow School of Art. She has lived in different countries and cities, including Berlin which she made her home for a decade.

Dinda Fass is a visual artist based in Edinburgh, who works with the written word, photography, and moving image. She researches the nature of the photographic image, its relations with suggested narratives, and the dialectic between the still and moving image.

Elaine Robson is inspired by the contrasts of urban environments and takes delight in exploring cultures and the genius loci. In this exhibition she uses photographic works and artists’ books to show the colourful chaos of the fair.
