Orangutan is an exhibition of new work by Alex Impey which follows the culmination of his one-year Gordon Foundation Graduate Fellowship at Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS). It continues a way of working in which, through sculpture and language use, Impey sets form production and processing of particularities against means of making visible simple backgrounds of expectation, interpretation and purpose. The installation experiments with inversions of territory claiming and figures of expense resulting from movements of intention.
