‘Domestic Interior Rooms & Fixtures’:   (GB  Bristol, UK  2000)
“Domestic Interior is an inventory of emptiness. Here is a house that has already been cleared. The only images are four rough plaster casts of switches and sockets – deathmasks of the inanimate. In place of the usual end-of-tenancy stockcheck of fixtures and fittings, Begbie’s list of contents attempts to hold on to the intangible – the distinctive whirring of a clock, or the way that shadows and sunlight played across a room”……. Judith Palmer: ‘Paper Wraps Stone’: “Sitting Room: An Exhibition of Artists’ Books”: Righton Press: MMU 2006: exhibition catalogue essay extract
