Bone Meal


Bone Meal brings together six Glasgow-based artists to show new work at The Hidden Gardens. Using performance and writing to develop sculpture, sound, and video installations, our work engages with the living and life-supporting elements of the garden.

Used as a nutritional supplement and fertiliser, bone meal speaks to the bodily resonance and interconnectivity of materials in our cycles of production and reproduction.

A performance and reading event will be held in support of the exhibition.

Supported by Glasgow International, Creative Scotland, the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Canada House and the Cass Sculpture Foundation.


Thu 19 April – Mon 7 May
Tue – Thu, 10am-5pm
