Mark Wallinger’s 'The End' opens a year-long sequence of pairings at Ingleby, Edinburgh.
In the early years of the 19th century the English alphabet was considered a system of twenty seven characters and any schoolroom recitation of ABC’s would end with the 27th letter ‘&’ … and per se and.
Of and by itself and: a connecting symbol, linking one thing with another.
In the spirit of that linkage, and to celebrate the gallery’s 20th year, we are presenting a circular sequence of pairings opening in March 2017 and ending, where it began, one year later.
The first exhibition is Mark Wallinger’s 2006 film 'The End', screened to coincide with his major solo presentations at The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh and DCA, Dundee. The film will be screened on the hour from 11 am Wednesday - Saturday. Two weeks later 'The End' will be joined by 'The Apolcalypse', Albrecht Dürer’s famous volume of woodcuts from 1498, and two weeks after that, in an on-going cycle of fortnightly change, Wallinger’s film makes way for Katie Paterson’s 'All the Dead Stars'
