Huntly Police Station, Castle StreetCharcoal on paper
The Utopia Group (He Hai and Deng Dafei) researched the legacy of James Legge, a Huntly missionary who went to the Far East and a prominent scholar of China and translator of such classics as Confucius and the I Ching. The group responded to this heritage by producing a large scale drawing depicting Legge's life. The drawing was made up of twenty-four individual pieces that were distributed through a town-wide treasure hunt.
One of these locations was the Police Station, a location which serves as a poignant venue for the work as the artists come from a country where authority still has a major impact on cultural life.
