In 1987, a young Scottish artist spent a week on a North Sea oil platform, creating a series of paintings and prints that recorded the lives of those that worked there. A year later, that platform, Piper Alpha, was ripped apart in a series of explosions. 167 men lost their lives. Part of the Picture is not a straightforward account of this tragedy, but an exploration of art, memory and how the rest of the world understands the industrial world. Glasgow-based Bletherbox brings inventive physicality and live music to this personal perspective on public tragedy.
