Social Dramas

Exhibition

Glasgow-born anthropologist Victor Turner was renowned for his concept of ‘social drama’; the process by which a group of people can break apart and through time can either come back together, or change forever. Busswood and Clamp get to grips with this influential concept using video to play out the four stages of social drama – rupture, crisis, redress and finally, reintegration or schism.

Busswood and Clamp have recently graduated from the Glasgow School of Art Masters programme, and often work in domestic settings, exploring themes of communication and representation.

Hollow/Subterrane

Event
Performance

Responding to Alex Tedlie-Stursberg’s sculptural work “Vessels” (presented as a part of the group exhibition Holy Wave), Evan Hardy will be performing a new ambient piece entitled Hollow. The piece will be performed using modular synthesis and tape loops of field recordings made in both artificial and natural caves of British Columbia, Canada’s Fraser Valley.

Hardy will also be presenting a sound installation entitled Subterrane, which will consist of a generative sound piece that is constantly shifting, created by an independent system using a modular synthesizer and field recordings.

Evan Hardy is a Vancouver based musician, artist and archaeologist, who creates compositions inspired and shaped by the weighted complexities associated with working with remains from the distant past – while living in the present. Hardy explores themes related to our relationships with our environments, and the sound of continuously occupied spaces. These compositions mirror the stratigraphic structure of middens.

Free, no booking required.

Between preservation and immanent decay

Exhibition

Responding to common research interests including landscape, liminality and materiality, these four artists seek to push the boundaries of medium specificity and interdisciplinarity through an ambitious use of four of the Laurieston Arches.

In a site-specific response to the location as a post-industrial, ‘post-purpose’ space, ‘Between preservation and immanent decay’ navigates the arches’ history as a railway site, through its transition from disuse to a place for cultural experimentation. The artists will transform the site into a highly considered, cohesive exhibition space.

Picts in Paris/Barbaric New Era by Jedrzej Cichosz

Event
Performance

Barbaric New Era is my reaction to the conformist, secure, lazy and calculated way of making art as well as boring lifestyle. Performance will be inspired by the Picts – the indigenous people of Scotland, involves: sound, choreography, smoke.

Free, no booking required.

Holy Wave

Exhibition

Holy Wave touches on the connection between art and ritual; a connection less obvious today, as art becomes increasingly self-reflective, and religious rituals abide by rules stemming from years of unchanged worship. It remains essential, however, in understanding art’s role in contemporary society and spiritual life.

The artists view the art object as charged with power; a combination of intention and action; of emotions and thoughts that cannot be separated from material and labour.

Cleave

Exhibition

For Cleave, six artists working across sound, sculpture, video, painting, photography and performance will install their artwork across three arches in a dynamic format that switches between minimal/maximal space and male/female artists.

The word ‘cleave’ means both to split and to adhere to – embodying acts of divergence, as well as convergence. Cleave begins as a concept split along natural lines of being that, when taken as a whole, establishes a common artistic expression linking the three arches into one coherent whole.
