An Obstacle Soup Installation for Record Store Day
@ Monorail Records, Glasgow G1 5RB
20th April – 7th May 2012
For World Record Store Day 2012 (21st April) and to coincide with GI (Glasgow International Festival of Visual Arts), Monorail Records are hosting an exhibition curated by visual artists Chris Biddlecombe and Janie Nicoll.
This installation is the result of a collaborative project involving the creation of twenty record cover artworks created by a wide range of Scottish artists, each of whom have a strong interest in or connection to music making; artists who have been in bands, who DJ, or who use music as a theme in their art making practice.
Alexander Violette; Amy Marletta; Baldvin Ringsted; Brian Hartley; Chris Biddlecombe; Douglas Morland; Fiona Danskin; Hrafnhildur Halldórsdóttir (Rafla); Ian Smith; Jim Colquhoun; Janie Nicoll; Jason Nelson; Jim Lambie; Jonnie Wilkes; Karen Vaughan; Kevin Hutcheson; Kevin Reid; Nicola Atkinson (Nadfly); Ronnie Heeps; Ross Sinclair.
Each artist has created their own fictional ‘artiste’s album’ in the form of a 12” double sided artwork displayed in a plastic sleeve. All will be released on the collaborative project 'label' - Obstacle Soup.
Chris Biddlecombe and Janie Nicoll are both artists based in Glasgow who each have a history of making work in the form of site specific installations using a variety of techniques that create ambiguous dialogues with the viewer using cultural, historical or social references.
