Anthea Hamilton & Nicholas Byrne

Anthea Hamilton and Nicholas Byrne will inhabit Govanhill Baths with large brightly-coloured suspended and free-standing inflatable sculptures. The inflatables incorporate influences from advertising, popular culture, psychedelia and an underlying cheeky sexuality. It is a re-imagining of a project originally presented at Poplar Baths in London during the 2012 Olympics.

The collaboration extends the duo’s interest in the theatrical and sensory experience of art. The project allows visitors to access this beautiful example of early twentieth century civic architecture, which first opened in 1914.

Supported by Homecoming Scotland and Culture 2014.
