Abstract or Description
Donald will the culmination of my contribution to Adaptation, at Collective Gallery, Edinburgh, developed by the gallery in response to the multi-strand practices of Banu Cennetoglu, Maria Fusco, Dominic Paterson and Sarah Tripp. Adaptation will have a circular structure, which aims to challenge sequential narratives, and will be divided into four phases each dominated by a particular form. The four phases each take a different form of performative production across 2012—the lecture (February), the seminar (April), the essay-film (August), the book (November).
I will develop the book, Donald, as my main contribution to this project, which will centre on critical and creative readings of a selection of the film roles of Canadian actor Donald Sutherland, and will further build on previous writings on Sutherland’s work in my book The Mechanical Copula.
