'Pieces of You Are Here' will mark Scottish artist Lorna Macintyre’s first solo exhibition in a major UK institution in which she will debut a new body of work commissioned specifically for Gallery 2 at DCA.

About

A significant focal point for these works will be an archaeological artefact now housed at the McManus museum in Dundee: a small terracotta tile excavated from the nearby Carpow Roman Fort in Abernethy that bears a pawprint by a dog, who, centuries ago, walked across this clay surface as it was drying.

Macintyre uses a broad spectrum of referential touchstones – from poetry and literature to archaeology and symbolism – as sources of inspiration for photographic and sculptural works. Often her work evolves as a response to source material that is language based - a phrase in a novel or a line in a poem. These references form a kind of oblique structure behind a piece of work, lending a form for a composition or providing the impetus behind her choice of materials.
