Edition of 6 + 2 A.P.

Christine Borland’s limited edition was conceived and produced on the occasion of her production residency and major solo exhibition  “Cast From Nature” at Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

“Cast From Nature” took as its starting point the striking fiberglass sculpture From Nature (credited to John Goodsir F.R.C.S Edinburgh) part of the permanent collection of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. Intrigued by this anonymous, partially flayed body, Borland set about looking for the original and further information about its’ subject. After finding a plaster version of the same figure, abandoned in the basement of Edinburgh’s Medical School, there followed a six month process in Glasgow Sculpture Studios, where Borland set to work publicly, making a mould and recasting the original.

This limited edition is a plaster cast of the right foot from “Cast From Nature”.

A new version of this work was re-presented at Camden Arts Centre in a solo exhibition in May 2011. As part of that show Borland also exclusively produced a plaster cast of the left foot from “Cast From Nature”, available to purchase through the Camden Arts Centres website.

This edition is exclusively through Glasgow Sculpture Studios with proceeds from sales reinvested in GSS’s international programme, enabling the organisation to support artists in the development of new work.
