Mourning Glory

Sat 1 Feb 2014

Grant Falland was an author of the Lehman Brothers Examination Report, and he died while on a trip celebrating its completion. He was also the best friend and first love of Brian Lobel, who mines the text in this installation, looking for Grant's presence in the report's 2,000 pages.

Each day for five days, Brian will cut out pieces of the historic report to recreate the couple's emailed love letters, exploring ideas of personal and international collapse and looking at how individual stories can lurk within the coldest of discourses.Click here for Part 1 of the installation: Or else your friends will have to do it
