Fifeman

Alan Grieve, Peter Haining, Jason Nelson, Kevin Reid

This exhibition was an unconventional exploration of the psyche of ‘Fifeman’ by four male artists all hailing from towns inFife. All four artists utilise myth, storytelling along with the people and places of Fife in their work. ‘Fifeman’ presented the work of Dunfermline man Alan Grieve, Kelty lads Jason Nelson and Kevin Reid, with Peter Haining who was schooled at Bell Baxter, Cupar and BuckhavenHigh School. All Fifemen attended Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design,Dundee. The exhibition title came from Pete Horobin’s work ‘Fifeman’ (1984), a short film with a voice over read by the artist, which plays on Fife dialect and slang, containing a concrete poetry list of all the towns in Fife that ‘Fifeman’ hails from. This exhibition was curated by the Exhibitions Department, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design.
