it But How Hemoved’; Craig Richardson, ‘lnstallation', Collective Gallery, Edinburgh

Christine Boriand’s installation work develops and rellnes her broad questioning oi the ordered discourse ol the museum. Her ability to express challenging theoretical ideas with an incisive visual power is evident in the work on show. Glass shelving, reminiscent oi the clinical coldness at institutions, is mounted on the walls oi the gallery. This symbolic structure oi support and presentation lorms a critical counterpoint against which the viewer’s expectation oi seeing objects on display is disrupted and questioned by their non-appearance. White powder on the suriace oi the shelving lonns an outline to a series oi marks which are then shot through with caretully positioned light. Shadows are projected on to the walls which reveal the physical reterence to the marks which previously appeared to be white iormless images possessing no clear ldentlty.The shadows illumine the shape oi human bones which become metaphors lor death and the

iragmentation oi human existence. Adorno suggested that the word ‘museum’ describes objects to which the observer no longer has a vital relationship and which are in the process at dying. By presenting objects as dead shadows, recalling the past and the processes oi decay which they undergo through time, illusions oi reality are probed in this museum bereft of lite. It the shelving represents the support oi institutions which are responsible tor the preservation of lite, then another illusion is revealed by their iailure to do this. Decay results, reality remaining a blaming shadow.

The visual language at Craig Richardson’s ‘Installation' is lormally austere and very personally enclosed. A series at white enamelled objects arranged in various orientations around the space possess no obvious iunctional value and are supposed to suggest violation or absence at human presence. However, the minimal nature at the worir and its impersonal, almost impenetrable aesthetic lessens the successtul communication at these interesting ideas to the viewer. (Lorna J. Waite)
