Studio Voltaire is pleased to present a new major commission by Glasgow-based artist Hayley Tompkins occupying both gallery spaces.
The new installation Currents, is built around arrangements of clothing, digital colour photographs and adjusted ready-mades. Using pieces of fabric alongside technological devices and other painted material, Tompkins will seek to embody an interaction with the immediate environment, working through thoughts, actions and desires.
Supported by Russell Tovey. With special thanks to The Modern Institute/Toby Webster Ltd, Glasgow.
