Scottish Manufactures is a performance work that starts at the north facing entrance to William Playfair’s (1759 -1823) Royal Institution Building (now The Royal Scottish Academy) and uses James Macpherson’s (1736 – 1796) Fragments of Ancient Poetry to travel to Playfair’s unfinished National Monument atop Calton Hill. The performance then continues to the completed Napoleonic Monument to French Prisoners of War commissioned by Alexander Cowan (1775 – 1859) in Penicuik. The performance deals with the manufacture of a Scottish Identity. The performance premièred on November 20th 2021 as part of the Society of Scottish Artist's Annual Exhibition and was live-streamed.
