Event description

Description

Love Without Limits was written and recorded by Richard Taylor during a residency at Hospitalfield, Arbroath (October 2017) and further developed during a residency with Market Gallery, Glasgow (December 2017). It will be presented as a 15-minute two-channel audio installation played at intervals, with an accompanying publication including written content by Natalia Masewicz, Richard Taylor, Leo Plumb, William Joys and Sarah Forrest.

Love Without Limits is a story told by four characters with four distinct perspectives who inhabit a fictionalised mid-1700s version of Corgarff Castle in the Cairngorms.
The piece combines interest in history, landscape and architecture; particularly the period in Scottish history after the second Jacobite rising, and military histories where sodomy was used to feminise and manipulate captives.

Through close observation, the narrative intermingles jealous and obsessive feelings, which fuel manipulative and voyeuristic behaviours in the reach for political or personal gain. The story also challenges views on anxieties felt by individuals who exist in close-knit communities, often formed by situations beyond their control. Such examples today might be the gay community, the visual art community, online communities, familial situations; where people are expected to be fluid and renewably understanding of other bodies and values.

The event strives to create a space where the medium of storytelling will serve to examine the possibilities and limitations related to the concept of intimate listening within curatorial and artistic practice.
