Double Mountain

Emma Finn

Description

Commissioned by the Edinburgh Art Festival as part of the Improbable City Programme 2015, and supported by the Scottish Government, Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund and St James’ Centre, Double Mountain is situated in the mountains, places which by their very nature create boundaries and divide up space. ‘The Marks’ – drawings in Finn’s sketchbooks, which for her are quasi-autonomous forces which emerge with stories to tell – are up in the mountain, wondering how to get out of broken cable cars, looking for lost tickets and endlessly making paper airplanes. The air is thin and they move slowly and quietly: the mountain itself is making all the noise.
