France-Lise McGurn meets Nova Scotia the Truth
SAY Award winning musician visits Aloud exhibition at Kelvingrove
In part two of this series, Scottish Album of the Year Award winning artist Shaheeda Sinckler, aka Nova Scotia the Truth, met with Glasgow International 2021 artist France-Lise McGurn at her exhibition site at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
France-Lise’s newly commissioned installation, Aloud, draws on her personal experiences of the gallery; the hours she spent there as a child and then later as an adult, inhabiting but also observing. In particular, Albert Moore’s well-loved painting, Reading Aloud (1884), has provided a point of departure for McGurn: especially the very specific positioning and postures of the models, its textures and ambiguous lack of urgency or context.
Watch the two discuss their shared inspiration below.
France-Lise McGurn’s exhibition can be visited at Kelvingrove Art Gallery until June 2022. More info.
