For this group exhibition I made a work which maps a year in the life of an artist/musician who moved to Glasgow in 2006 and was deported in 2007.

Observations on the life and work of the artist/musician were arranged along a time line and colour coded. This pattern of sentences made a community and a context from which to consider a small, collage of geometric diamonds used by the artist/musician during a performance at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow.

You Are of Vital Importance to the Art Community also exists as a reenactment and a piece of prose fiction.
