Marysia Gacek: pleasant setting

Marysia Gacek: pleasant setting

Opening 5 - 8pm Saturday 11 July 2015

Glasgow Sculpture Studios
The Whisky Bond, 2 Dawson Road
Glasgow G4 9SS

Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work, pleasant setting, by Marysia Gacek, developed throughout her one year Graduate Fellowship at GSS from November 2014 until November 2015.

Marysia Gacek’s work is known for its suggestive personal symbolism, using memory and arcane cultural referents that assert the transcendent possibilities of the banal. Gacek works in a variety of materials ranging from painting, clay, to textiles and video. By starting with a place, an image, a specific memory, or an object, she creates structures and narratives with loose connections using personal symbolism and different modes of representation.

A small publication will accompany the exhibition including a commissioned text by writer and curator Melissa Canbaz.

Exhibitions runs until 5 September 2015
Gallery open 11am - 5pm Wednesday - Saturday, or by appointment.
Glasgow Sculpture Studios is a membership organisation that receives revenue funding from Creative Scotland and Glasgow Life.
