JAMIE CREWE: FEMALE EXECUTIONER
Jan 26 - Mar 26, 2017
A solo exhibition of newly commissioned video, print and sculpture by Glasgow-based artist Jamie Crewe. Focusing on French writer Rachilde’s controversial 1884 novel Monsieur Venus, the exhibition explores what happens when a queer, transfeminine artist tries to rehabilitate an historical work of fiction which seems to offer them ancestry.

Apr 27 - Jun 25, 2017
Private view Wed Apr 26 6:30pm - 8:30pm
The exhibition comprises a newly commissioned film and installation exploring how optical technologies of military and colonial design – from lighthouse Fresnel lenses to global satellite navigation systems – both inform and are informed by Western models of knowledge. Taking a critical approach to the ideologies behind the development of these instruments of guidance and surveillance, the artists consider how imperial gestures of discovery, revelation and possession are embedded in associations between seeing and understanding, light projection and enlightenment.
