Contributors / Simon Morrisey

Simon Morrissey is a writer and independent curator. In both areas of his practice he has developed a particular interest in the use, and frustration of, narrative. This preoccupation has surfaced both as a subject in his writing on contemporary art and as a device, such as adopting narrative conventions of a ghost story or film script to host critical discussion, or structuring an exhibition around a fictional narrative. During his residency at Grizedale, Simon researched a novel, the provisionally titled Dead Water - a story of uncanny similarities between the main character’s car crash and Donald Campbell’s last fateful speed record attempt in Bluebird on Coniston. The publication has not been published as yet.
