In conversation with Fiona Jardine

In 2013, for Glasgow’s Merchant City Festival, Panel presented Barrie Girls, an exhibition created in collaboration with graphic designers Sophie Dyer and Maeve Redmond, and artist Fiona Jardine.

Barrie Girls took its inspiration from a set of historical lookbook photographs loaned from the store rooms of Barrie Knitwear, a manufacturer of luxury cashmere based in the Scottish Borders.

Ceci n’est pas une foto is the booklet that forms part of Barrie Girls, containing a series of texts written by Fiona Jardine, offering potential narratives for the photographs as well as reflections on place, identity and style. Fiona talks with Laura Richmond about Ceci n'est pas une foto and The Barrie Girls here.
