I will be exhibiting a piece of work in this exhibition between 26th February – 3rd March.

RE:VIEW is an intervention into Pollok House by undergraduate and postgraduate students from the Department of Sculpture & Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art. Through sculpture, installation and performance, the nine exhibiting artists explore such themes as critical museology, domestic labour and privilege, materiality and the movement of information. With each intervention made especially for Pollok House, RE:VIEW provides a dynamic counterpoint to its historical collection and contemporary activities.

The exhibiting artists are Honey Jones-Hughes, MollyMae Whawell, Natalie Rose Clarke, Kate O’Shea, Shu Xin, Martin Darbyshire, Stefano Pia, Nathan Smith and Tara Marshall-Tierney.

The opening event takes place on Thursday 25th February from 5.30 – 7.30pm and is open to all, refreshments will be served. The exhibition runs from 26th February to 3rd March, open 10am – 5pm every day. Entry to the exhibition and to the House itself is free.

The artists will all be present at the preview event so there will be an opportunity to ask them about their work, although there are no scheduled artists’ talks.

Exhibition: Saturday Afternoon at the Savoy

savoy exhibition

The culmination of my recent research into divination has been a book titled Calixtheamancy: A Practical Guide. Alongside this I have been developing a performance piece which will take place at a two-day exhibition staged in the Savoy Centre in Glasgow city centre.

The piece, Calixtheamancy, is a participative work based on the idea of fortune telling and alternative methods of divination. Participants will have the opportunity to have their fortune read through an entirely new method of divination, devised by me.

The performance will take place in unit 64, first floor of the Savoy Centre at 4.30-5.30pm on Friday 12th February. More information about the exhibition can be found here.
