BLACK HOLE - YAKA COLLECTIVE

Fri 16 Oct 2015

 

▒▒▒▒ PREVIEW: SATURDAY 17/10 | 7-9 PM ▒▒▒▒

▒▒▒ PROJECT ROOM , TRONGATE 103 ▒▒▒▒ 

 

A year on from group exhibition 'SO IT IS', YAKA explores possibilities within the collective, using the Project Room as a testing ground for the elusive theme of 'Black Hole'.

 

Questioning temporal paradoxes, the strong gravitational pull towards the unknown, the emotional void within us all, and ideas of a body so massive that light itself cannot escape; this investigation will form a loose foundation for ‘White Mountain’, our upcoming show at CCA Intermedia Gallery in December.

 

Sunday 18th | 12-5pm

Tuesday 20th - Saturday 24th | 12-5pm

Making Voice - Kirsty Stansfield

Wed 21 Jan 2015

 

Saturday 24 January 2015, 2-5 pm, Opening Event, 2-4 pm Friday 30 & Saturday 31, 1-5 pm

This exhibition of current work-in-progress explores the physiological act of voicing sound within the body.

The voice represents far more than what is said. How something is said, the cracks, pauses, stutters and gasps perform the body in ways that are often unconscious but which can tells us something about the wider context of the body. This quality of the voice reveals and lays bare information about ourselves that is often hidden and barely acknowledged in our daily lives and how we communicate with each other.

I am interested in the idea of the voice being an object like any other in space. The works on display identify and visually explore some of the components
that make voice within the body. In this exhibition the voice itself is audibly and materially absent. Instead a visual language of sculptural objects, watercolour and embroidery are used to map out or attempt to isolate elements, and to disentangle the visceral density of the anatomical interior body.
