About Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Work from the Collection is a solo exhibition by the Glasgow-based artist Stephen Sutcliffe. Glasgow Museums recently purchased five works by Sutcliffe for the City’s collection and this is the first time the films, photographs and wall drawings will be exhibited in GoMA. We are delighted that Sutcliffe has lent us two further works to mark his first solo show at the gallery, which follows major commissions for the Manchester Art Festival and Edinburgh Art Festival this year.
Sutcliffe's work draws upon an extensive personal archive of broadcast material and printed ephemera that he has collected over a number of years. He is interested in the use of the archive and his collection also includes the New Yorker, where he takes inspiration from the cartoons of Saul Steinberg, amongst others, for his wall drawings and photographs.
In his films recordings from television, cinema and radio are edited together to make poetic new works that focus on anxiety, self-doubt and the creative process. His careful editing of sound and image creates an awkwardness or interruption, which is often humorous at first glance, but can become quite dark and satirical, revealing an interest in the subversion of dominant narratives about communication, power and class.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Stephen Sutcliffe: Work from the Collection are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
