The Polity of Φ - Deniz Uster and Alberta Whittle

Fri 4 Mar 2016

The Polity of Φ is a year-long community-led research project encouraging an open dialogue into the right to inhabit specific geographies, creating a platform for migrants, asylum seekers and refugees to interrogate personal notions of “home”. These ideas of “home” and “belonging” are often challenged by the damaging discourse of right wing politics and the extended difficulties encountered by those applying for visas to reside in the UK.

This project will culminate in its presentation at Glasgow Project Room in Trongate 103, during the “Declaration” Health and Human Rights Festival, taking place 5th – 12th March 2016 and at the Intermedia Gallery at the CCA during 7th-25th April as part of Glasgow International (GI). 


On the evening of 5th March, between 6-9pm, we will be hosting The Polity of Φ: The Call, an event similar to Speakers Corner, where participants speak freely at the ‘Φ podium’ at the Glasgow Project Room. This free event is an opportunity to become part of the growing conversations about exactly who is welcome in Scotland.  


Confirmed speakers include the Glasgow Girl Amal Azzudin; activists, Pinar Aksu, Fuad Alakbarov, Joshua Brown, Olivia Ndoti, Margaret Woods from Glasgow Campaign to Welcome Refugees, Margaret Sweeney from Glasgow Night Shelter, as well as individuals directly on the frontline, who have arrived in Scotland as refugees and asylum seekers. 


The Polity of Φ has been coordinated by Deniz Uster and Alberta Whittle, working in partnership with Maryhill Integration Network (MIN), Govan and Craigton Integration Network (GCIN), Pan African Art Scotland and has been generously supported by Creative Scotland, Glasgow City Council, the Art Store, Glasgow Project Room and the CCA.

S U P E R N O V I A - Conor Baird, Lo Buddy and Ross Fleming

Fri 19 Feb 2016

S U P E R N O V I A 


With a diseased imagination Conor Baird, Lo Buddy and Ross Fleming exhibit new works that envisage indulgent topias through concocted and autonomous memento mori. 


These detached worlds are the fated, yet altered futures of the artists. The affected personas that fill them become constrained and initiate a mourning exercise for their sexual and intellectual losses. An aspirational river of metal is forged in their own image. 


The present is interrogated, whether its plausible queerness is palatable or if a lone bliss rests in a dismissed destiny ahead. A new horizon may soon approach but demise is certain.

With You Without You is a collaborative project. It circles around ideas about adornment and sculpture, and the blurring of boundaries between the two. 


Sculpture as jewellery. Jewellery as sculpture. Objects seen in a space and to be imagined on the body. A collage of fine art principles, the use of space, traditional craft techniques (sewing, embroidery and goldsmith) and the idea of adornment. 


Helen is a maker of jewellery and lives in Copenhagen, Hrafnhildur (Rafla) makes sculptural installations and lives in Glasgow. They have embarked on a collaboration of sorts, apart and together, through an exchange of materials and a fusing of their half-made works and the project will culminate in a week of working together in the Glasgow Project Room.


Since meeting on a plane in 1998, they last collaborated on shows in Copenhagen and Glasgow in 2002.
