Paul Harfleet

Paul Harfleet, installed hand collaged wallpaper to the living room walls. His second work; 'I had a dream i found a magpie outside my flat, then i did', explored ideas of memory and precognitive dreams, as the title reveals the magpie was found after a dream. The artist then kept the magpie in his freezer until he decided what to do with it. Several months later Paul made a single frame one minute long video of the magpie entitled 'One for Sorrow'. He then drew the magpie, and placed the drawing in the hall way allowing the drawing to be trampled by visitors. Finally Paul placed the magpie back where he first found it, enabling visitors to happen across it en route to the space recreating the deja vu experience.
