Souvenirs of Calton Hill are unique, design-led objects that use a sustainable production model which supports artists, makers and the manufacturing industry here in Scotland, the UK and Europe.
For the project, Rachel Adams has worked with Edinburgh-based jeweller Elizabeth Jane Campbell and Glasgow company Flux Laser Studio; Mick Peter with master weavers Alex Begg & Company in Ayr; Katie Schwab with Dundonian waxed cotton suppliers Halley Stevensons and Coatbridge-based garment makers Greenhill Clothing; Katy West with producers in Stoke-on-Trent; and Alan Dimmick with Danish company Flensted Mobiles.
On Saturday 15 June, 2019, Panel co-ran the Collective Matter shop on Calton Hill.
In the library of the City Dome, taking inspiration from the ‘Monuments’ hanging mobile by Alan Dimmick and Flensted, visitors were invited to make their own hanging mobile using images and shapes influenced by Alan’s Calton Hill portraits. In the shop, artist David Sherry explored the world of retail with pop up performances ‘Selling Receipts’ and ‘Lucky Business’ and on the hill, architectural historian and cultural landscape specialist Kirsten Carter McKee introduced the history of Calton Hill, revealing the stories which inspired our souvenir collection.
