Alternative Guide for Walking
Publication Launch

Wednesday 26th February
6-8pm

A publication documenting a walk between Arrochar and Inveruglas. Whilst on this walk, the practitioners are exercising a new way of walking and experiencing the outdoors. The work is photographic and written, produced both independently and collaboratively. Landscape has often been seen as a place for conquer, dominance and physical strength, this publication challenges these ideals, reverting the stereotypes and using walking and landscape as a safe space for conversation and free making. Veering away from the path is not just advised but encouraged.

Jess Hay, Sofie Keller, Rosie Trevill and Silke Zapp are four visual practitioners in collaboration, focusing on the outdoors as a space to discuss identity politics, and community-based making.

Copies of the publication will be on sale, £5 is suggested, but no-one refused a sale due to lack of funds. All profit made from the publication sales will be put towards the next walk, where people will be invited to join the collective on their excursion.

Prints from the publication will also be available for purchase.

i guess it's about time...
Robert Thomas James Mills

Publication Launch
Saturday 22nd February
4-6pm

Robert Thomas James Mills is an artist and writer who focuses on earnest and humorous performances which explores his own realities and identity.

Working things out by playing with words, Robert's work is usually an ever public conversation with himself. However this publication is a (semi) public conversation with you. These words are from a year long project in which (roughly) once a week a piece of writing was sent out in an email subscription in an attempt to explore, experiment and discover what the capacities of being a writer for Robert meant.

Some are good, some are bad, but they're all mostly honest and mostly unedited.

And that journey is still on-going.

Please join us for the launch of this new publication, where selected texts will be read around and some context around the project will be given.

Jamie Johnson

Publication Launch
Friday 14th February
6-8pm

'The book calls into question the origins of artistic impulse, the roots of artistic talent, and asks “what makes a good drawing?”' - 5b

Jamie Johnson creates intricate abstract landscapes that often hint at Scottish geology and folklore. Working across painting, collage, printmaking and video, his work explores cultural symbolism from both modern and ancient worlds, communicating observations and ideas by creating an autonomous visual language. Selected Drawings chronicles a group of works on paper made by the artist between 1991 and 2019, tracing the genesis of his unique take on characterisation and storytelling.

Jamie Johnson is a Glasgow-based artist who graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee in 2011. Recent exhibitions include: Crocodile Tears, Morgan Fine Arts Centre, New York; Allder, Chopping Block Gallery, London; Primitive Plane, SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow; A Sketch of the Universe: Art, Science and the Influence of D’Arcy Thompson, Edinburgh City Art Centre, Edinburgh.
