vault- the mutual

i'm delighted to be selected for this, should be an exciting event!


The Mutual at Vault Art Glasgow


9-11 September 2011

The Briggait, 141 Bridgegate, G1 5HZ

Entrance £4.00, under 12s free

www.vaultartglasgow.com



The Mutual finds a sympathetic staging for an idealistic exploration of cultural commerce and non-monetary exchange within The Briggait for VAULT 2011. As a fish market the Briggait was once a trading ground in which commodities were bought and sold. Similarly invested in ideas of trade, communication and fair exchange The Mutual draws inspiration from the industrial traditions of skilled labor and Glasgow’s mercantile heritage.



In Glasgow and at The Briggait the passage of time has replaced one market and its attendant community with another. Within this new creative market we showcase a series of pamphlets by fifteen of our members; displayed and traded according to the pageantry and volume of the previous market. The members have created their works in response to the ideas and issues surrounding the venue and the event recalling the legacy of the fish market and examining notions of exchange; commodity, service or intellectual trading, monetary or otherwise.



In an alternative method of communication reminiscent of maritime signals a series of unique flags created by each artist have been turned into a new textile commission on collaboration with Bespoke Atelier.

prefab exhibition

hope you can make it

here's a wee peek at some of the work;


carolyn mason






also lesley mcdermott








angie mclaren *

and linda mclaughlin




Prefab – Exhibition opening: Saturday 6th August 2001 5pm – 7pm



                        Studio 42, West Graham Street, Glasgow, G4 9LJ


Prefab is an exhibition of selected works by artists, Lesley McDermott, Angie McLaren, Carolyn Mason and Linda McLaughin. The artists have taken over the Studio 41 space to explore a range of ideas based on a female perspective of our role and experiences how they evolve with society. The works are challenging, often posing awkward questions that don’t have easy answers. In the title there is a suggestion of impermanence, of an era when things were different, certainly in terms of women's role in society, our childhood, how environment and experiences influence what we become.


Works on show include:


lesley mcdermott- the screen print series 'a woman's place' references aspects of feminist text that allude to shifts or complacencies in current attitudes to equality, the installation 'someplace new' (collaborative homage to 70's 'Womanhouse' with linda mclaughlin) comprises of digital piece 'semiotics of the home' and found object/ mixed media work


angie mclaren- handmade paper hangings trap personal items, sculptural objects, photomontage and digital presentation 'Awakenings' based on women's intimate thoughts, reflect experiences, feelings, relationships and memories


carolyn mason- mixed media pieces include a christening dress stitched meticulously from condoms and winged moth-like objects constructed using human hair, also a series of screen prints are amongst various responses to the female persona.


Exhibition runs: Sunday 7th - Friday 12 August 2011, 12pm - 5pm daily


(Thursday late opening 12pm - 9pm)


Preview: Saturday 6 August 2011, 7-9pm


This conceptual, visual art exhibition includes installation, sculpture, print, photography and video that will fascinate and provoke a personal response.
