'Local News' - Invitation
I would like to invite you to take part in an exhibition of 'Local News'. I
am attempting to collect items of 'local' news from across Europe (and
Living in a small rural town on the south western tip of a small(ish)
island off the western coast of the European continent, it is sometimes
easy to lose perspective on the broader picture of current affairs, and to
get caught up in issues of the immediate surroundings and their personal
effects. The same can be said of any location.
The term 'local' is always problematic: where do you draw the boundaries
between local/ regional/ national/ international/ global? - And in what
terms do you define it - geographically? culturally? politically?
In 'Local News' I would like to look at the meaning of 'local' on a
personal scale of individual experience, the running of our day-to-day
lives and the effects of events, directly or indirectly, on ourselves and
our surrouindings. Here the boundaries blurr: global may become local, and
My attempt is to bring together the personally selected events of a day
from various 'localities' across the globe.
TO CONTRIBUTE to this project please follow these instructions:
* ON SUNDAY 27TH NOVEMBER (this coming sunday) buy a local newspaper,
select an article which effects you (directly or indirectly), cut it out
and send it to me together with a comment ,in English, on why you chose it
and how it effects you and/or your 'locality'
Your newspaper clippings and comments will be exhibited at Gallery One-C
in South Brent, Devon, UK., on 10th December 2005.
Please send your clippings and comments to me a.s.a.p after 27th November
