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.

Termite Tapeworm Fungus Moss is an exhibition of new work by three Glasgow-based artists – Kate Davis, Charlie Hammond, and Hayley Tompkins – which explores their shared interest in the commonplace. 

Although working across a diverse range of media, these artists each begin with what is close at hand. Their practices are enmeshed with their everyday lives and they share a desire to examine, unpick, and re-imagine the minutiae of their daily experiences. Questioning personal and economic value systems, Davis’ artwork frequently re-evaluates voices and moments customarily marginalised by the art historical canon; Hammond often makes paintings that employ themes of domestic labour, work and include familiar objects (newspapers, pot plants, taps, and fungi); and Tompkins combines paint, photography, furniture and film to evoke feelings of joy in sensory experience.
