Openaries II: Vaginas and snakes
Saturday 12 April 2014
7pm – Midnight
Working collaboratively, Laura Aldridge and Anna Mayer have designed and built a portable ceramics kiln, to be the focus of three firing events during Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts 2014. Glasgow Sculpture Studios will host the second event in the series themed, Vaginas and Snakes. Local artists and practitioners are asked to contribute a performance or offering to these public gatherings. There is an emphasis on sociality and an exploration of how the art making process can be both ritualistic and casual.
The other two events will take place as follows:
Openaries I: Thought forms/Theories of the universe (uttered rather than written)/ John Baldessari
SUNDAY 6 APRIL 6 –9PM
THE HIDDEN GARDENS, TRAMWAY
Openaries III: Ever open openings/Ever more open openings/The expanded vessel
SATURDAY 19 APRIL 4-7PM
WOODLANDS COMMUNITY GARDEN
The events will include offerings from……
Kathryn Elkin, Corin Sworn, Julia Scott, Ciara Phillips, Katy West, Jimmy Merris, Hayley Tompkins, Lauren Gault, Garnet McCulloch, Kate Davis, Clare Stephenson, Ric Warren, Claire Barlcay, Thoth, Michael Hill Johnston, Jake Dotson, Sue Tompkins, Thomas Clark, Ruth Barker, Luke Collins, Neil Bickerton, James Rigler, Alistair Dearie, Charlotte Prodger, Annemarie Copestake, Nick Evans, Jemima Wyman, Scott Myles, Laurie Clark, Laura Spring, Charlie Hammond, Lotte Gertz, Suzanne Dery, Fiona Jardine, Ross Little, Michael Stumpf, Lorna MacIntyre, Rachel Adams, Casey O’Connel, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd, Jedrzej Cichosz, Florrie James, Alhena Katsof…..
The foyer of Trongate 103 will be the base for the project, displaying the dormant kiln, ceramics produced and providing information on the events.
