12 – 12:50am
Tonje Bøe Birkeland – Bertha Bollette Boyd: Among Mountains and Monasteries
Presentation by the artist about her work on show at Timespan. The subject of this exhibition, Bertha Bollette Boyd, is the fifth character in Birkeland’s The Characters project, which began in 2008. The project positions women within landscape while exploring the authenticity of history. Staging female explorers in expeditions to Unknown Territory, The Characters divulges stories in the forms of photographs, journals and found objects. The project aims to create a gallery of personas of female heroines from the past, who through narrative, fantasy and photography can fill a void in our history whilst reflecting on some of contemporary society’s challenges: globalized colonization on the one hand and the loss of “great adventure” on the other.

Alicia Bruce
The award winning photographer, Alicia Bruce, will discuss the continued relevance of her 2010 project on the Trump acquisition of parts of Menie in Aberdeenshire. Bruce spent the summer of 2010 collaborating with residents of the Menie estate, an area of outstanding natural beauty and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) situated 20 minutes north of Aberdeen. The residents’ homes were under threat of compulsory purchase as Trump International started construction of a golf course, hotel, and housing development with plans to re-name Menie ‘The Great Dunes of Scotland’. The photographs, made possible with the financial assistance of the Aberdeen Visual Arts Award, present a humane story about people and place – an observance of conflicted territory and those who inhabit it.
