This collaborative project between visual artist, Brian Teeling and arts writer, Jennie Taylor explores Crawford Art Gallery’s buildings and its immediate surroundings through a printed publication which is populated by photographic images and pieces of flash fiction. Capturing and entangling a stillness as a witnessing object and the frantic movements of a living gaze, in this publication time fictionally folds and collapses to bring details from 1921-1924 into a dislocated moment.

Teeling and Taylor’s work is drawn from research of the buildings’ architectural features, the permanent display in the Sculpture Galleries, a selection of buildings located in Emmett Place, events that occurred and were visible from the Gallery during 1921-1924 and the lives of local artisans from the same period.

About the Artists
Jennie Taylor is a fiction and art writer. She has published her work in Critical Bastards Magazine, The Stinging Fly, Visual Arts Newsletter, and Paper Visual Art. Her practice draws from particle physics, auto theory, and micro-histories. She writes fictional narratives about the material properties of art objects and situations. Through the use of art writing, fictioning, and speculative storytelling, she troubles existing histories and dominant identities. Her practice builds a mosaic of textual gestures that take up space in subtle and effective ways, acting as microscopic and lasting forms.
