David Mach ‘Against the Tide’ Cass Art, Glasgow
The Art Space, Cass Art, 63 – 67 Queen Street, Glasgow, G1 3EN
Installation: 3rd – 15th April, 2018
Exhibition continues: 16th – 27th May, 2018
Artist David Mach will be coming to Glasgow in spring 2018 to make a colossal installation ‘Against the Tide’ within The Art Space at Cass Art Glasgow. Using some 5 tonnes of newspapers, Mach will take over the space, constructing a tide of newspaper. Boxes seeming to contain weapons of a military nature will be embedded in the construction, appearing to float along as though swept away by the tide.
Mach says: “This piece focusses on the tide of information we receive daily, and the questions this information raises about our contemporary lives. Questions about our sexuality, gender, race, industry, money and politics. We seem to have more concerns than ever about all of these things or maybe these age old questions are just the same?”
Alongside the installation, 100 collages will be on display.
Private view on 16th April 6-8pm. Simply RSVP to [email protected] with David Mach Private View RSVP.
