Since graduating from The Glasgow School of Art in 2013 Callum has directed and produced a number of short films that intimately explore and depict social and personal histories and sites from across Glasgow and Scotland.
Following in the vein of previous film works the project and exhibition at the Studio Pavilion will take as it’s starting point Glasgow born architect and engineer Archibald Leitch. Leitch began his career designing factories with the sole surviving example being the category A listed Sentinel Works at Jessie Street, Polmadie but also went on to become Britain’s foremost football architect.
Through moving image, sound-scape, original salvaged architectural objects, typography & print, the exhibition will explore the shared, transferable language of industrial design that translated into football grounds in the United Kingdom and its lasting social impact. As well as touch upon the significance of two places & sites (factory and football field) to the lives and history of many, particularly the working class, exploring how Archibald’s work spanned across the two. By bringing the building into the gallery through film and sound Rice will offer an alternate insight into an overlooked subject and disparate place and do so through the alternative medium of artist film and sculptural installation.
Preview: Friday 26th April, 6 - 8pm
