Toby Paterson: Thresholds

Toby Paterson: Thresholds
Library Shelf Location 18.PATE
Publication Date 2015

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop in partnership with Maggie’s Centres presents Thresholds an exhibition of new work by artist Toby Paterson curated by Judith Winter. The exhibition brings together the series of works that Toby has made specifically for the seven Maggie’s Centres across Scotland. These works are presented alongside memory drawings and models giving the audience an insight into the inspiration, contexts and the process of creation and production involved in their development.

Both artist and curator were drawn to develop the project through their personal and professional interest in the founding ethos of Maggie’s Centres, and the idea of exploring a new model of living and working that does not separate art from life. The resultant series of constructed reliefs presented at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop focus on the process of making through direct experiences with people and places, echoing the sensibility of Maggie’s Centres themselves. Brought together in a single exhibition at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop for the duration of the festival, the reliefs will be carefully re-located following the conclusion of the exhibition, one in each of the Maggie’s Centres across Scotland. They will exist quietly as a family of ‘things’ specific to each location, but connected through a shared experience.
