This exhibition was due to take place during Glasgow International 2020, 23 April – 10 May, which has been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis. The festival will be re-staged in 2021 with dates to be announced.
Excerpts From The Library at Patricia Fleming, Glasgow and There Is A Volcano Behind My House at Mount Stuart, Isle of Bute, bring together an expansive new body of work by Ilana Halperin on both sites. Halperin has expressed, “Rocks are really the first immigrants.” As an immigrant herself, Halperin views her own movements as part of a hearteningly older migratory tradition.
Halperin is assembling a quietly urgent, international narrative of the history of the earth, rooted in her own life, alongside local human and geologic history, featuring sculptures, textile and drawing. At a startling volcanic site on the Isle of Bute, Halperin is performing a geologic narrative – a moment to reanimate the landscape and our relationship with it.
