Solo exhibition final presentation of work at the MERZ Gallery, Sanquhar in Scotland. Exhibition followed a two month residency supported by Creative Scotland.
MERZ gallery is named after the work of Kurt Scwhitters. This Way That Way is a imagining of Kurt Schwitters ‘Merz Bau’ and his Merz Columns, all all encompassing installation that began to take over his house. These columns explore the architecture of the MERZ gallery, the sculpture as a journey, travelling through the skylight, into the attic and into the basement. Constructed of re-claimed materials collected during the residency.
The wallpaper design in the basement space inspired by graphics in the MERZ publication by Kurt Scwhitters, exploring the use of an arrow to suggest an extension of space and continuation of the sculpture.
