Peripheral Histories is a two venue exhibition on display concurrently at The Lighthouse and Platform. The exhibition features four emerging Glasgow based artists.
Calum Douglas explores the tension between science and belief in the search for extra-terrestrial life in America’s south western states, while Alan Knox explores the relationship between the sublime and the uncanny by documenting the architecture of space simulation at the Mars Yard test area, constructed by Airbus Defence and Space in Stevenage, southern England. Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte combines photographs made by her father in the last days of the Soviet Union’s grip on her native Lithuania with her own images of life in the West made using expired film as old as the one used by her father. Sarah Amy Fishlock takes her late father’s life as a point of departure to investigate ideas of grief, mortality and memory through using double exposure to create a dual narrative that binds past, present and the natural world.
