"Index" is an on-going series of 5" x 5" collages intended to be shown in different combinations and configurations in response to the characteristics of the particular exhibition venue. The endless permutations and the on-going nature of its production are intended to allude to aspects of memory: time, repetition, sequence, connections. In Bratislava "Index" comprised 80 pieces from the series installed in the three rooms of the gallery which occupied the first floor of an historic city building dating from c.1800. The installation of the work dictated a path through the rooms and by clustering, isolating or banking the collages a particular set of connections between individual pieces was established. A pace and time structure of viewing was also a consequence of the particular installation. The individual elements might be considered visual equivalents to thoughts or memories - the "stuff" we carry around in our head and order in one way or another. They exist both individually and cumulatively, form layers as well as juxtapositions.

The exhibition is one in a sequence of exchange projects between artists and institutions from the North East of England and the Bratislava area of Slovakia which commenced in 1992. This exchange has resulted in solo and group exhibitions, participation in symposia and artist's residencies for artists from the two regions. Production of work for 'Index' was assisted by a Rootstein Hopkins Sabbatical Award. A selection of work from the series is reproduced in a monograph, ISBN 0 9527634 1 9.
