Eloquently presented in this compact hardcover book, Glasgow-based emerging
artist/writer Sarah Tripp's collection of stories examines the proximity and
distance between characters, communities and objects. Tripp's multi-stranded
practice consists of writing, performing and filmmaking, all of which she utilizes
to explore how our characters and identities evolve. Her writings are marked by
the use of multiple perspective, episodic structure and suspended denouement
and focus on improvisation and the relationships between gestures and speech,
text and object and narrative and film. Influenced by the psychodynamic writings
of Adam Phillips and Christopher Bollas, the creative writing of Lydia Davis and
the practice of Frances Stark and Apichatpong Weerasethakuls films, Sarah
Tripp's work is grounded in direct experience and observation. Tripp teaches
at Glasgow School of Art and was recently commissioned by Creative Scotland
to co-produce an installation/performance event for Glasgow International
Festival of Visual Art.
