Arrange Whatever Pieces Come Your Way

For Glasgow International, Glasgow Print Studio is playing host to the first major exhibition in Scotland of large-scale quilts by Arrange Whatever Pieces Come Your Way, the collaborative powerhouse of London-based Annabelle Harty and Sheelagh Boyce, who lives and works in Glasgow.

Hand-sewn over hundreds of hours, Harty and Boyce’s abstract works are the physical manifestation of a long friendship between the pair. Influenced by collected images, travels, ideas and memories, they use old and loved clothes from friends and family and respond, either in intimate detail or through a broader contextual approach, to the architecture of a building, place or the garments themselves.

Harty and Boyce’s exhibition is a modernist nod to the festival’s theme of ‘attention’ and mirrors the collaborative nature and materiality of printmaking.
