More Glasgow International shows with MFA graduates

Sigga Björg Sigurdardóttir and Erica Eyres


Date: 06 Apr – 21 Apr

Sniffer was born in the month of June, thus making him a typical Gemini. Abandoned by his parents at an early age, he spent his youth wandering the streets, aimlessly searching for food and love. All his life, Sniffer has suffered from a severe split personality (which is common amongst the Gemini), and has endured much pain and suffering throughout his quest for belonging…
Eyres and Sigurðardóttir have created a filmic installation within a traditional Glaswegian Victorian domestic space. Collaborative drawings, sculptures and video form a narrative around a character named Sniffer – an absurdist, grotesque version of Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.

Allison Gibbs, Jennifer Bailey, Tessa Lynch, Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir


Date: 04 Apr – 21 Apr
Kelly is an expanded exhibition, produced under the conditions of shared authorship. The exhibition is the result of artists Allison Gibbs, Jennifer Bailey, Tessa Lynch and Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir’s establishment of a working group and interest in the advantages and disadvantages of the group dynamic, confession, sharing expectations, friendship, personal ambition and the issues of asserting individuality among others.
