Aimée Finlay: A Thurifer Left

Type: Exhibition

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is delighted to present  A Thurifer Left  by Aimée Finally, a newly commissioned installation for our Hawthornvale Space.

Aimée Finlay has produced this work using ESW’s foundry to explore her fascination with the casting process as a means to simultaneously reproduce and transform her sculpted replica’s of Thuribles. Through the work Finlay revisits their past experiences of ritual and ceremony as an altar server in the Catholic Church.

The Hawthornvale Space Programme is an ongoing series of public art commissions that aims to give the public an unexpected and thought provoking encounter with contemporary art. It connects the work of the artists we support with our local community and passersby. Housed in our on street gallery space the commission is viewable daily from the street, projecting the work of the commissioned artist into the public realm to engage a broad audience, many of whom might not regularly visit art galleries.
