The Sculpture Show – Posturing

sculptureshow_4

Posturing is the overall title for a collection of three new sculptures and one photographic work by the Edinburgh based artist Rachel Adams. It is also the individual title of one of her sculptures; a work which takes its inspiration in structure from Antonio Canova’s neo-classical marble depiction of The Three Graces. Adams’ version is produced with crumpled painted waxed paper; carefully standing, it is positioned atop a tie dyed fabric covered plinth. The plinth’s colours, and the dappled effect created by the tie dye process, together produce a finish which bears a resemblance to certain types of marble.

Posturing is part of the Scultpure Show, Modern One, Scottish National Gallery of Modern art on till 24th June 2012.

The Duchy presents an ambitious off-site project, showcasing new artwork by a selection of Scotland’s strongest young artists; a collective generational representation brought together with a focus on the individual vision and practice of each artist’s structural rigour and semiotic sensitivity.

/ Arrives in Starting will show the work of a disparate set of young contemporary artists representing a diverse range of artistic positions, with order and clarity achieved through collective display. The critical content of the exhibition examines the current state of contemporary art in Scotland today; chosen due to their on-going achievements both nationally and internationally and a commitment to producing exciting and innovative art. Each artist has been invited to contribute an ambitious piece or body of work, with The Lighthouse providing a central platform for each artist to present in the context of an exciting international festival within the historical setting of the building’s newly refurbished main gallery space. The exhibition encompasses film, performance, sculpture, painting and installation; focusing on each artist’s individual practice rather than searching for equilibrium, to demonstrate the best new work to the international audience of the festival.

The Duchy is a gallery working with the most exceptional recent graduates, emerging artists and more established practitioners. The exhibition, and the gallery’s first off-site showcase, is a topical show in line with The Duchy’s curatorial vision with any themes or topics arising from a desire to realise the potential of an exhibition through adopting an anonymous position. / Arrives in starting aims to represent its exhibiting artists and is also illustrative of the duchy’s curatorial ethos in an experimental form. In the several themes contained within the show, the direction is rooted in the title; taken from Mina Loy’s 1914 poem Aphorisms on Futurism, tying in with the festival’s curatorial theme Real Time and reflecting the focused and emerging nature of the contributing artists.
