Solitary

(Harry Burr)


A site-specific installation consisting of performance, drawing, writing and film.  The  work was made for the  group event UPLAND held in the 2nd World War Prisoner of War camp Cultybraggan, near Comrie in Perthsire.


To make this work I put myself in to 'solitary confienment' in the only remainting cell on site, reading the letters sent to and about my grandfather while he was missing, presumened dead, but actually, himself, in solitary confinement in a number of PoW camps across Germany and Poland.
