The shadow of a doubt

Sandra Johnston

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The Shadow of a Doubt is an installation made from a collection of gathered fragments, in the form of objects, texts, videos and performance gestures, which have been re-enacted as both drawn marks and filmed documentation of actions. A few years ago Johnston acquired nine chairs from a scrap yard that had been salvaged from the Maze prison. These chairs form the centre of an extended dialogue about retracing pivotal moments of the 1980’s through recollecting the mediatised versions of events and paralleling them with memories of a protected home life.
