Published on the occasion of their exhibition Vessels at Lunchtime Gallery (02.12.22 - 05.02.23), Inscriptions and Verses is a pamphlet of writing and drawing by Emalia Mattia. Mattia repurposes lyrics and chords that their Grandmother would tape to the back of her autoharp when playing in her bluegrass band in the 1970s, accompanying them with fluid drawings of bodies in expressions of labour and passion, strife and joy. These characters, much like the ones in Mattia's paintings, become stand-in performers amongst imagined scenarios that embody local architecture, historical artifacts and illustrations of desire, as well as American country musician Tammy Wynette's the stoical lyric 'A real good life is hard to find'.
Emalia Mattia was born in Washington D.C. and grew up mainly in Liguria, Italy. Since graduating from the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia in 2018, they have been developing their painting, printmaking, and performance practice in Glasgow for the past four years.
Texts by Caitlin Merrett King, Teddy Coste and Phoebe Eccles.

THE JUNCTION was a performance at Lunchtime Gallery by Teddy Coste that took place on 15th July 2022. A performance about trying to be an artist and trying to make a living, Coste criticises the looping and vertical game of Capitalism as it plays out in both gig work (working as a Deliveroo driver) and trying to establish oneself in a local art scene.
Teddy Coste is an artist who lives between Glasgow and Paris. He has performed at Radio Athènes (Athens), Montevideo (Marseille), Treize (Paris), Swimming Pool (Sofia), Het Nieuwe Instituut (Rotterdam) and Sans Serriffe (Amsterdam).

Donald Butler is an interdisciplinary artist and writer based in Glasgow. Their practice and research is continually informed by the experience of living with HIV and the collapsing of identity with epidemiology. The practice is an infected body, a stain of immorality, the site of contagion; it looks to viral transmission as a relational method and as a system for the display of information. It is haunted by trauma and is steeped in complex interconnectedness.
