After the Revolution, Who Will Clean Up the Mess? (2014) Ellie Harrison

After the Revolution, Who Will Clean Up the Mess? is a new installation and event by British artist Ellie Harrison, which is completely contingent on the result of the Referendum on Scottish Independence on 18 September 2014.

As part of Talbot Rice's group exhibition Counterpoint, four large confetti cannons have been installed in their ornate Georgian gallery space. Linked up to a central detonation unit, the cannons will only be activated in the event of a YES vote. If a NO vote is declared, they will remain dormant for the entire duration of the exhibition and we will never witness what might have been...

Join us throughout the night 18 - 19 September to witness all the action / inaction live!

  • Apply to be a special guest at the all-night Referendum Results Party at Talbot Rice Gallery, or
  • Tune in to see the LIVE webcast of the installation in the build-up to the announcement of the result.

After the Revolution, Who Will Clean Up the Mess? has been co-commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and Talbot Rice Gallery.
