Installing Marion Stuart Whirlwind

I felt it important to include this as each exhibition installation brings new lessons to be learnt. We knew there would be issues with timing this exhibition, with the return from Portugal and the installation of the work in progress exhibition. Much of the installation was given over to the gallery and despite delivery of work beforehand, it wasn't quite how marion had imagined it installed. It raised issues and lessons about pre agreement of roles and expectations and the clarity between what an artist may want to do and handing that over to a curator.

With that in mind I had been called in to trouble shoot issues with plinths and lighting and this then had further curatorial problems.
