Rachel Adams & Tessa Lynch: Stoop, Stoop, Stooping is Stoopid!
13 July 2019 until 14 September 2019
Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover
Glasgow based artists Rachel Adams and Tessa Lynch will present a new collaborative project in the Studio Pavilion gallery throughout the Summer of 2019 focusing on new sculptural print works that will frame their collaborative experiments and explore the idea of ‘domestic mess’.
Both artists share an interest in elevating craft and household activity, often associated with women’s work in to the realm of art. Looking to George Bataille’s notion of l’informe or the formless and the Bloomsbury Groups impulsive wall paintings at Charleston House, as well as the interior rooms here on site in the House for an Art Lover they will bring concepts of mess and chaos of interior rooms into the clean space of the gallery.
The artists have been tangled in one another’s practices for a decade yet have never had the opportunity to work together in an involved way. This newly developed collaborative practice will hint at the supportive nature of Margaret MacDonald’s role in Mackintosh’s career, evident in their exchange of love letters – in turn exposing the hidden network of artistic support and friendship that keeps Glasgow’s artistic community thriving.
This exhibition and the associated programme is kindly supported by: the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities, the Arts & Humanities Research Council, the WM Mann Foundation, Glasgow City Heritage Trust and the Scottish Funding Council.
