Caught by the River


4th September 2018

Andrew Wasylyk, ‘Menzieshill’ from the album Themes For Buildings And Spaces.

“Morning sunlight fractures and shimmers through the old, drafty windows of the Victorian tenement block where I live. Where many have lived before me. When the clouds allow, the sun reaches the perfect height and sends hypnotising patterns of colour to my living room wall.

I was drawn to the simple idea of combining this rare, beautiful occurrence with the paling ghost of the past. Fragments of a fading memory embalmed in a moment that, perhaps, never really existed at all?”


Andrew Wasylyk performs Saturday 15th September, Slessor Gardens, Dundee as part of the V&A Dundee’s opening festival.
