"Meg Duguid has spent the last year adapting James Agee’s 1947 script, 'The Tramp’s New World,' originally written for Charlie Chaplin’s 'Tramp' character, into a complex interdisciplinary project that will produce both performance and film. The shooting of her film becomes a performance for a live audience, in turn the resulting film is shown to a new audience and that event is again incorporated into the film and so on. Dugiud has produced part of her set for Terrain’s front yard: 'The Tramp' character's house. The sculpture looks like a two dimensional drawing that has been made into a sculpture, melding an artwork and it’s documentation into a single object."

"Joining the thriving group of artist-run exhibition spaces, Terrain was started by artist Sabina Ott and writer John Paulett in 2011. Terrain is dedicated to featuring interventions into the conventional landscape of a front yard by emerging as well as established artists who have been invited to create a site-specific work. Artists create installations that challenge the space between public and private, decoration and function, figure and ground."
