Say What I Am Called
Say What I am Called takes inspiration from the riddling culture of the Middle Ages to re-engage our delight in paradox, inversion and the unexpected.
At a time when boundaries are either being created or reinforced it seems more relevant than ever to parody and subvert systems of control. Come and navigate an interactive sculpture garden dominated by large obstacles and carefully crafted moments of intimacy: Oil paintings encased within aluminium structures; screen-printed banners adorning the walls, ceramic mementos amidst the debris and digital avatars will guide you on your journey.
Say What I am Called is part of the ongoing programme of temporary exhibitions and events that WAVEparticle facilitates as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces. This Show is also Supported by Glasgow City Council through the Visual Artist & Craft Makers Award and The Eaton Fund
