Stage Right is a collection of large scale print installations, created for the 4th Edition Hidden Door Arts Festival, at the Leith Citadel Theatre on 26th May, 2017.  

The 1920s art deco theatre laid empty and abandoned until now, where it will reopen its doors to the public for the first time in three decades. The theatre’s air is cold and still, as if in wait.  Its windows boarded up and sealed, decaying inward. There are footprints in the dust, fossilized and decades old, unearthed. The site is waiting, arresting breaths in time.

Then a pigeon disturbs the rafters and you are reminded of the present.

“I explore the relationship between society and entropy. The lifeline of our narratives, in a rather broadened sense.  I want to understand how we mark the world and how, it in turn marks us.  The relationship between the natural world and what we build in the name of civilization, culture, and history.  The rise and decline and recurrence of it all, how monuments become ruins then relics, listed and condemned, rehabilitated, developed, and revitalized anew.” -Kristina Chan.Stage Right is a reflection upon the theatre’s cultural history, of printmaking, and of the city itself. It serves as an homage to the once-abandoned Leith Citadel Theatre: its resurrection from dereliction to once again take center stage, both metaphorically and literally, to today’s emerging artists.
