An exhibition of bold, playful and engaging artwork created by artists, Richy Carey, James McLardy and Melissa Stabile and designers Oliver Pitt, and Anne Seseke, that introduce children to ideas and materials commonly used in contemporary art, through tactile experience, digital interaction, and movable shapes and forms. 
Featuring work by:

James McLardy
Glasgow based artist James McLardy’s pavilion sculpture emerges from the simple joys of rhinotillexis, the act of picking your nose, creating a series of pickable, malleable and reconstructible sculptures. The works are reminiscent of bronze modernist sculptures before they slip into a messy playful entropy, exposing bones, nasal cavities and grids. 

Melissa Stabile
Sao Paulo based artist Melissa Stabile has created a new series of her ongoing work Confortáveis or Comfortables, absurdly shaped wearable pillows, that incorporate a psychedelic whirl off vibrant colours and textures, including fake hair extensions, sequins, rubber, latex and fleece. 

Richy Carey
Artist and composer Richy Carey’s work looks at how sounds meet images. The TWIST (is that you're just like me) was realized collaboratively with a group of P2 school children at Glendale Primary School. Richy and the kids visualised, verbalised, sonified and embodied the in-between-states behaviours of Liquid Crystals to create an interactive sound and video installation.

Oliver Pitt
Glasgow based designer and musician Oliver Pitt, has created a wall mural inspired by ‘wet on wet’ paintings, a method of working with watercolour on wet paper, used at Steiner Schools to encourage young children to think about colour and form in an abstract way. 

Anna Seseke
Designer Anne Seseke has created a moveable typeset etched onto colourful perspex, that evolved from the standardised method of teaching french school children to write uniformly. Abstracted from this original influence the work creates a language free form structure or order, making letters into playful abstract shapes. 

Supported by Festival 2018, the cultural festival accompanying the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

* Richy Carey’s work was made with the generous support of Mark Bleakley, Margaret Salmon, Prof. Vance Williams and Jen Sykes.
