Simon Faithfull

21 October 2011 – 1 May 2013



As part of the exhibition Which of them went before, and which followed after, and which were together?
Simon Faithfull was invited to create a vinyl work for the windows in Grand Union’s project space.

Direct From This Window (117 degrees south-east, a view from the Bosphorus) is a laser cut vinyl taken from a digital drawing.

Faithfull has been wandering the world over the last 11 years, consistently making drawings on an electronic device that record his presence in a particular place, at a particular moment, somewhere on the surface of the planet. For more information on this body of Faithfull’s work and his wider practice see
