Iman Issa: Parables
6 – 8pm
Friday 17 April 2015
Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) is pleased to present Parables, an exhibition of work by Iman Issa. This is Issa’s first exhibition in a UK public institution, and GSS’ first exhibition with an Egyptian artist.
Issa’s work explores the relationship between history, memory, language, and objects. She does this through the presentation of multiple forms, including sculpture, text, video, photography and sound. Primarily interested in how forms can carry personal and political significance, her sources for the works are taken from existing material. This material is then stripped back to its essential elements and re-imagined by the artist into another form.
The exhibition has been generously supported by Creative Scotland, The Elephant Trust and The Henry Moore Foundation.
