Ross Sinclair reflects on his Real Life Gordon’s / Deveron Arts residency in Huntly

This is a very interesting and engaging slideshow/voice over lecture reflective statement from Ross Sinclair on his 3 month residency at Deveron Arts, Huntly last year. The energy, the anxiety, the what if’s for the artist in working in this context with a theme, blimey, what would it have been like if he didn’t do what he did, the gathering together of the local Gordons was a significant human reason to do all this. Important document of the project from the voice of the artist.

Brilliant bit of footage of Jesse Rae making an entrance, back out amongst us I believe, I remember seeing him a couple of times in Edinburgh ages ago, I enjoy the maverick, outsider-ness of all this, like Bill Drummond –

The talk is of a trickster, imp, provocateur, self publicist and a genius of mismanagement. He had the character of a creative destructive – in producing the New York Dolls, Sex Pistols, Bow Wow Wow,
