Salli Yule-Tsingas

Type: Exhibition

This June, The Deep End in Strathbungo is pleased to host Glasgow- based artist Salli Yule-Tsingas’ new solo exhibition, wander-full, wonder-fool, a complex exploration of identity, exile, and belonging through the media of playful installations and collage. This haptic nomadic project delves into the relationship between individuals and objects, challenging you to reconsider the value and purpose of everyday items in the face of cultural construction and consumerism.
Running concurrently with Glasgow International throughout the month of June, wander-full, wonder-fool invites audiences to engage with a thought-provoking collection of artworks that examine the silent struggles of objects in the modern world. From discarded treasures to obsolete relics, each piece in the exhibition represents a metaphorical demise of its true essence, highlighting the impact of mass consumption and disposability on our daily lives.
Artist Yule-Tsingas brings together pieces from previous iterations of this growing body of work which was first conceived in Greece a decade ago to evolve over space and time, melting together countries and cultures.

“The process of rescuing and elevating through collecting triggers forces within objects and ourselves,” says Yule-Tsingas. ” My work is a world of self-perpetuating, complex, yet mischievous Frankenstein like structures that coexist but are interdependent.”
Through playful, compelling interventions, wander-full, wonder-fool challenges our ingrained notions surrounding everyday objects or detritus, calling into question our own ingrained projections of significance and symbolism.

Join the artist at The Deep End, 21 Nithsdale Street, Strathbungo, G42 7QP for the opening event on Saturday 8 June (5pm–7pm). Otherwise, see the show during its run from Friday 7 until Sunday 23 June, 12pm–5pm

Salli Yule-Tsingas a British / Canadian artist awarded an MA from The School of Art, Architecture and Design, London (2014). Her multidisciplinary practice evolves across painting, collage, sculpture, found objects and installation, united by a consistently playful visual language.
Her work is comprised of three strands, the complete, the unfinished/finished and the in-flux. An evolving body of work as metaphor of a human body in relation to other bodies and places. It refers to far reaching vernaculars of psychology, popular science, displacements, DIY, psycho geography and anthropology, commingling with joy and desire for a shared life. Referencing the practices of Ilya Kabakov, Isa Genzken and Anna Maria Maiolino.
Upcoming solo exhibitions: Working title: Two Road-Chance, Parnassos Literary Society, Athens (2024).
Artist website / Reviews

The Deep End is an arts space and social enterprise developed by Govanhill Baths Community Trust (GBCT) offering a safe and secure space of 900 square meters with a sheltered urban courtyard of 130 square meters. It is located in the heart of the southside, just five minutes’ walk from Pollokshields West and Queen’s Park rail stations.

The site itself since 1882 has housed a dairy, a snooker hall, a motorbike shop, an undertaker and a base for the district’s cleaning department.
Creativity has always been at the heart of Govanhill Baths and is the focus of this new, inspiring and vibrant space. It has been designed to meet the needs of arts practitioners and makers with an accessible and welcoming venue.

The Deep End also furthers the aims of GBCT’s Govanhill Art and Environment Network (GAEN), which aims to facilitate regeneration of the local area through art and environmental projects.
