The upper galleries of the Academy Building at the Scottish National Gallery features works made by seven artists made between 1990 and 2014. The restaging of Steven Campbell's On Form and Fiction offers a starting point for the exhibition: this immersive environment of ink and acrylic drawings, with benches and musical soundtrack proved highly influential when it was first shown at the Third Eye Centre in Glasgow in 1990. Another pivotal exhibition restaged here is Martin Boyce's Our Love is Like the Flowers, the Rain, the Sea and the Hours, originally created at Tramway in Glasgow in 2002. Also on show are two video projections by Rosalind Nashashibi, a room of Exposed Paintings by Callum Innes, sculptures and woodcuts by David Shrigley and Christine Borland's sculptural installation, L'Homme Double, while Karla Black has created a new sculptural hanging piece in response to the Gallery's neo-classical Sculpture Hall.
