Contributions are invited for a photographic installation/exhibition

Contributions are invited for a photographic installation/exhibition in The Lang Byre Gallery in may 2011.

The Redsuit Project was conceived in 2009 and presented initially in 2010 at Left Bank Gallery in Tarland, Aberdeenshire by artist Janet McEwan, who asked a number of people, including amateur photographers and professional artists, to take a disposable red coverall and photograph it in a place of their choice.

The performative, playful and poetic images taken in places near and far, encourage us to reconsider where and how we position ourselves within the worlds around us.

The project is now calling for more participants: to respond to the Redsuit theme, and help create an evocative group artwork which will be installed in the Lang Byre Gallery throughout May.


  1. Get your redsuit!
    Red coveralls can be purchased from the Woodend Barn reception desk for £5, or by contacting the project email address below, to arrange a postal delivery.
  2. Take a photograph featuring a redsuit.
    If the red coverall is worn as a ‘costume’, the identity of the wearer must be concealed, e.g. photographed from the rear. The redsuit can also be placed as an object, within the photograph: e.g. see lower image on left. The image should be landscape format. A short accompanying text is requested, but is not essential.
  3. Send your image(s).
    Please email a high-resolution digital copy (at least 300dpi) to You can send up to 5 images. There is no entry fee. Janet McEwan will be responsible for selection, printing and presentation of all images. All print costs will be covered by the project. Prints will not be for sale unless with prior agreement with the photographer.
  4. Come to the exhibition preview on May 1st!
    All participants will be invited to the exhibition private view.


Mon. 18th April – Final date for receiving images.

Sun. 1st May – Exhibition Preview 6pm – 8pm.

Thurs 26th May – Last day of exhibition
