This show also marked our foray into public space! Glasgow City Council very kindly let us use a space in Saltmarket to host this show. It was really kind of them and we are very greatful (especially as they’re letting us use it again).
The show featured the work of Ian Birkmyre, ACD Ferguson, Pete Fleming, Kate Gallacher and Christine Leathem. All five artists in analogue : fourway work roughly with themes of artifice, mechanisation and machination. Birkmyre uses found and reclaimed materials to create interactive sculptural contraptions. Fleming creates poetic systems of abstract machinery that translate and recode their elements. Gallacher works across painting and video; employing lo-tech means to create hypnotic sequences based on a nonsensical and awkward fragility
