Jacqueline Donachie is known for her socially-engaged art practice that is rooted in an exploration of individual, family and collective identity and the structures and spaces through which it is constructed and supported. Based upon research and collaboration, her work encompasses sculpture, installation, film, drawing and performance.
For Glasgow International, Donachie is engaging directly with the city’s architectural heritage. The centre of Glasgow was built during an era of great wealth brought by slave and tobacco traders; the outer suburbs were planned at a time of huge social ambition. Working from ongoing research, she creates a vibrant place to commune and begin new discussions that question how we can continue to access this heritage.
