McManus projection spectacle
A VIDEO installation will be projected on to Dundee’s biggest art gallery and museum in an epic finale to the building’s 150th anniversary year.
Artist Duncan Marquiss and musician Jonnie Common have been preparing a video installation called Drawn to Light to bring the McManus Galleries’ year-long celebrations to a close.
The finished work will be u nv e i l e d in style on November 25 when it is projected on to the exterior of The McManus from 7pm-8.30pm.
Local contemporary artist Mr Marquiss was allowed t o delve i nto Dundee’s treasure trove of fascinating objects, stories and works to create the installation. The finished work aims to turn The McManus “inside out”.
Mr Common has also been behind the scenes of the gallery recording sounds, such as the rumble of storage units being moved and echoes in gallery spaces and hallways, as he constructs a soundtrack inspired by the building for the installation.
