Glasgow International 2020

Tim Head

Black Light

Exhibition

Black Light is Head’s first solo show in Scotland. It is also the first time the Garment Factory has been used as an exhibition venue. The exhibition will showcase new and recent large-scale digital prints and works on paper.

Since the 1990s Tim Head has developed an innovative body of work focused on an exploration of digital space. Using projections, LCD displays and inkjet prints, Head’s works attempt to articulate ‘the digital medium’s elusive material substance’. The works that this exploration has produced are surprisingly beautiful, at once visually seductive and conceptually rigorous. Moreover, they represent a continuation of concerns that have preoccupied Head since his earliest exhibitions, an investigation of reality and perception. As Michael Bracewell recently wrote, ‘The art of Tim Head has long made articulate the curious yet forcefully real schisms which exist between the techno-materiality of the modern world and our experience of its constitution.’
