Preview: 12 July, 7-10pm
Exhibition opening hours: Tue - Sun, 11am - 4pm
Glasgow based artists Rachel Adams and Tessa Lynch present a new collaborative project in the Studio Pavilion gallery throughout the Summer. Taking as their focus Frances Gabe’s invention - the self-cleaning house, the pair have used this as a framework by which to look at laborious making techniques and connotations of domestic mess. The artists have been tangled in one another’s practices for a decade and both share an interest in elevating craft and household activity often associated with women’s work in to the realm of art. This is the first time they have worked together in an involved way. Rachel & Tessa have been working on site over the last couple of months with all the work developed collaboratively, with dual decision making and doing allowing for a new joint practice. An associated talks programme will be announced shortly.
