Glasgow international 2018

20 April—
7 May

Douglas Morland

For Matthew

Exhibition

The Hidden Noise presents an ambitious new film installation and performance programme by Douglas Morland inspired by events surrounding the death of colliery worker Matthew Clydesdale in 1818. Hanged for murder, surgeons attempted to resuscitate his body using primitive electrical apparatus. The story has become part of Glasgow’s medical folklore, raising questions about the power, veracity, legibility and erasure of historical voices.

The artist and curator have collaborated on an events programme to be interspersed throughout the exhibition.

Exhibition supported by The Hope Scott Trust.

Fri 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Thu & Sat: 12 noon-6pm
