This book by contemporary artist Christine Borland offers a remarkable insight into her new work I Say Nothing. First displayed at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow, Scotland, it is a creative response to Glasgow Museums’ World War I collection. With contributions by other writers, including fellow artists, curators and a conservator, the book reflects on the making of the artwork from different perspectives, as well as its research and development, within the context of Borland’s wider art practice. 

Written in an accessible style, the book has much to offer both those with an ongoing interest in Borland’s work and readers who are encountering it for the first time. The development of the artwork is extensively documented with images, including stunning photography of the installation in Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
