You Can See Them Coming From Both Directions

Margot Bannerman

The work was made in response to walking the Cally with Jimmy, a caretaker who has lived and worked there for thirty years. His routines, exchanges, and knowledge of sounds at different times of the day, revealed a strong sense of belonging and highlighted the pleasures and tensions of being in, and taking care of, a place in which his family has lived for five generations. Audio and image explore a collision of both epic and unremarkable resonances of specific spaces.

Margot was commissioned as part of Cally Calls a partnership project with Team Cally in 2013 supported by CreativeWorks.
