The Note Takers

Vin Ryan, Peter Burke, Tara Gilbee
June 7th – 24th, 2023

Vin Ryan, Peter Burke and Tara Gilbee are three artists who occasionally collect found, handwritten notes from their surroundings. Each collection represents a series of communications between people but also a gathering of ephemeral objects. In this project, the artists join forces to reinterpret these collections using paint, photography and photograms. A singular anthology of discarded material is shuffled and rearranged into a ready-made conversation. Not quite a stream of consciousness nor a linear, coherent narrative, the artists open the dialogue back into the streets. They aim to establish broader connections, uncover traces and remnants, and even make contact with the dead.
