From Friday 20th April- Monday 7th May there was an exhibition, event and performance entitled ‘Bone Meal’ running at The Hidden Gardens as part of Glasgow International 2018.
Bone meal brings together six Glasgow based artists to show new work at The Hidden Gardens. Using performance and writing to develop sculpture, sound, and video installations, our work engages with the living and life-supporting elements of the garden. (Glasgow International 2018, Festival Guide, p.57).
We interviewed two of the artists/ performers Suzanne and Amy whose work was called “Time Pieces”
What is the inspiration for the installations?
The formed space of the Garden itself and its geometrics and the tools we have been working with allows for playful interaction with the Garden’s space, each other and the tools.
Why is the exhibition important?
It brings six different Glasgow artists together and invited outside artists for a collaborative project. It allows a series of pieces ‘to happen’, when you have this opportunity. An idea gets to be manifested, working with your own time, not clock time, realising a different sense of time and finding your own time in nature.
What do you hope the public take from the exhibition?
We want to invite people to keep their own time too, it’s important for people to see that art and play can be the same thing. Working together allows artists to reflect off each other.
How has the experience of working together over these years changed the way you work?
Both of us have developed a new sensibility through a shared understanding, paying attention to an intimate close relationship, rather than a global context of social media and inter connectivity, trying to stay connected through art.
The exhibition was interesting and thought provoking, we would like to thank all of the artist’s for their contributions and hard work.
