AboutStudio 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 used and bought fabric, alongside technological devices and other painted material, Tompkins will seek to embody a person interacting with their immediate environment, working through various thoughts, action and desires.
A new 132 page publication covering Tompkins' work has recently been published. Designed by Marit Münzberg, the book is published by Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and contains essays by Daniel Baumann, Pati Hertling and a conversation with artist Karla Black.
