This was work make during a residency in Vilassar de Dalt in 2016. It was made in response to the disused fabric factories in the area. I was also thinking about ghosts and remnants when I made the work. I wanted to find away to give the space the appearance of it’s own agency in the production of the work. The title Quis Est Iste Qui Venit is the inscription on the whistle blown by the protagonist in MR James’ story O Whistle and I’ll come to you My Lad. It means (roughly) who is it who comes. In the case of the story this isn’t explained but it most definitely isn’t what the professor expects or wants. You could say the same about the factories which started off as almost palace like and ended up guttering out, ruined and abandoned, given a temporary glamour once a year by the festival.
