Artist's Talk: Jacqueline Donachie
17:00 on 10 November 2017
The Fruitmarket Gallery
Jacqueline Donachie will be in conversation with the Fruitmarket’s Director Fiona Bradley.
Jackie Donachie takes over The Fruitmarket Gallery with a major, mid-career exhibition of sculpture, installation, photography, film and drawing, rooted in an exploration of individual, family and collective identity.
Donachie is interested in the structures, platforms and spaces (both actual and conceptual) in and through which we construct and support ourselves in the world. For this exhibition she has made a series of new sculptures and installations which are shown in the context of two important existing works, each specially reconfigured and re–presented for the Fruitmarket.
A new version of Donachie’s classic Advice Bar (1995/2017) opens the exhibition. At once a Minimalist sculpture and a performance piece, it will host a programme of advice sessions throughout the exhibition, in a nod to the work’s first incarnation in New York, during which a young Donachie dispensed drinks and free advice to visitors. Sharing the same collaborative and participatory spirit is Temple of Jackie, a miniature social space built into a reconfigured camping trailer.
These socially engaged, participatory works set the tone for the exhibition, which continues with an ambitious series of new sculptures which build on the imagery and ideas with which Donachie has been working throughout her career. Making spaces and drawing lines in aluminium, leather, paper and bronze, Donachie makes works that we can look at, sit on, stand beneath and measure ourselves against.
