Katherine MacBride | Having Been Breathed Out / Patriarchy Over and Out

9 February 2019 until 24 March 2019
CCA Glasgow

Katherine MacBride’s work explores different forms of hospitality, thinking about how listening and attentiveness can happen in conflicted spaces and times. While Katherine’s interests focus on relational entanglements, listening across difference, and working creatively towards an ethics of inseparability and interdependency, the work also poses questions about the space of its host institution CCA; how it can think and host differently.

She is interested in how the structures of CCA can offer different modes for interpreting and accessing artworks, beyond pieces of paper or wall texts – how the work can involve itself in more material ways of speaking and performing. This new exhibition brings together a series of large-scale textiles – using a range of fabrics and forms which support different sensory capacities – installed as spaces for encounter, response, and rest: soft and tactile architectures, day beds, quiet acoustic interventions.

A key part of the exhibition is a new performance, a speculative re-memory of a porous Europe based on feminist solidarity and queer care, making reparations for its colonial violence and ecological wastage. Made with access input from Collective Text, performers Angelica Falkeling, Clara J:son Borg, and Raluca Croitoru, and sound design from Anna Frei. Three workshops with Azahara Ubera Biedma, Emma Haugh, and Naomi Pearce make space for embodied and embedded forms of shared study – thinking and doing together.

This exhibition is kindly supported by the Mondriaan Fund
