The Bunker | Curated by David Faithfull



Building D, Level 1, Room 12, Runt Space


An exhibition of Artists Books, Prints and Multiples on the themes of military, civilian and personal conflict, curated by David Faithfull

David Faithfull is an artist, printmaker and curator based in both Edinburgh and on the Isle of Mull in Scotland. He lectures at the University of Dundee and publishes Artists Book, Prints and Multiples under the Semper Fidelis imprint.
Much of his work involves his relationship with the natural environment, through Palindromic and Panoramic forms and sequences. These involve extensive studies on the Scottish Hebrides and include the recent launch of the Artists Collective 6°W and the collaboration with the poet John Burnside and the Scottish Book Trust on the Isle of Jura. This also featured in Polygon's 'The Spirit of Jura' in 2009, as a visual chapter alongside pieces by renowned international writers. Other publishing collaborations include the Gaelic Arts Agency’s ‘An Leabhar Mor – the Great Book of Gaelic’, currently on its world tour.
Additional projects involve curating the highly acclaimed travelling Artists Book exhibitions ‘Cabin:codex’ 2011 and ‘Inkubator’ 2007 – 2011, installing specific themed spaces to challenge the nature of interacting with Artists Books. A recent series of prints for the Halifax/Bank of Scotland, was created using shredded banknotes, reflecting the 2009 stock market crash. Other printmaking projects include the ‘Jettison’ series of prints, multiples and Artists Books, documenting the crash of a Tornado jet near Torness nuclear power Station, in south-east Scotland.
Faithfull has exhibited extensively and has work in collections including the Tate Britain, London; the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh and the Hunterian, Glasgow; as well as numerous private collections internationally.
He is currently on the boards of Edinburgh Printmakers and the Society of Scottish Artists.
