Library Shelf Location 15.SCCA
Publication Date 2013
Description Scotland + Venice 2013 is an exhibition of new works by Corin Sworn, Duncan Campbell and Hayley Tompkins, three of the most consistently interesting artists working in Scotland today, presented by The Common Guild in the Palazzo Pisani (S. Marina). Corin Sworn creates installations that explore the ways objects can circulate stories and histories. Often combining images with spoken narrative, her work examines the cultural and personal significance attributed to things and how they in turn narrate us as social subjects. Duncan Campbell produces films that look at representations of the people and events at the heart of very particular histories. Combining archive material with his own footage, his work questions the authority, integrity and intentions of the information presented. Hayley Tompkins makes painted objects that transform familiar, commonplace things – such as knives, hammers, mobile phones or furniture. Her work articulates the relationship between the form, feel and function of an object. Scotland + Venice is a partnership between Creative Scotland, British Council Scotland and the National Galleries of Scotland. Scotland + Venice 2013 is presented by The Common Guild, Glasgow, where the artists will re-present their work in the summer of 2014.
