This book considers how the architectural expression of Calton Hill has been perceived, accepted and rejected as ideas surrounding cultural identity, governance and nationalism have changed over the last 200 years.
â€˜Jane Brettleâ€™s installation Allegorical Blueprint, for the 1995 Fotofeis exhibition (Plate 8.4), on the other hand, overtly separated cultural from state imagery, to demonstrate that schism in reality during the mid 1990sâ€™.
In notes: â€˜Jane Brettleâ€™s work also considered the relationship between the classical structures on Calton Hill and gender, which could be considered as similar to the influence that the hill had on Hill and Adamson, and their subsequent work with the Newhaven fishwives discussed in chapter 6.
