  • A petition for an enquiry into a condition of anxiety

Tatham, Joanne and O'Sullivan, Tom, 2016, Show, Exhibition or Event, A petition for an enquiry into a condition of anxiety

Abstract or Description:

A petition for an enquiry into a condition of anxiety will resume the task of negotiating the conditions and contexts through and within which contemporary art circulates.

Within the exhibition, Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan have brought together a number of seemingly disparate elements in order to create a situation within which to consider the activities of art making and art showing. A desk like structure speaks of the expectations and pressures surrounding the institutions that exhibit art, whilst also functioning as a display table – or landscape – on which a set of figurative ceramic objects perform.
Easels is a series of black and white hand-printed photographs in hand-made plywood frames depicting Glasgow artists in their studios and represents another kind of landscape – that of the lone subject working within the post-industrial spaces of the city.
