'This Song Belongs to Those who Sing It’ Michael Stumpf
4 April 2014 until 4 May 2014
Mackintosh Museum, The Glasgow School of Art
This new commission sees Michael Stumpf (GSA MFA Graduate 2004, lives and works in Glasgow) making an installation of exterior and interior new works at The Glasgow School of Art.
For The Balconies commission Michael Stumpf makes a new temporary sculpture for each of the balconies, on the Reid Building and the Mackintosh Building. For the Reid Building, Stumpf creates a 4m high text-sculpture made up from the words NOW and SING. For the Director’s balcony on the Mackintosh Building, Stumpf makes a chain-like object that sits over the railings. The colours of the two sculptures are significant. Michael Stumpf sees them as a poetic timeline, hinting dusk and dawn, running between the two buildings and throughout the exhibition. Michael has also made a body of new work for the Mackintosh Museum.
This exhibition is part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art’s Supported Programme.
