Her body remembered a night-blooming cereus, sweated industry and salt (what came near)
Platform is delighted to welcome the Travelling Gallery and their exhibition by Lauren Printy Currie in collaboration with Glasgow Women’s Library. Lauren Printy Currie works in sculpture, writing and installation, creating assemblages that hybridize the material and psychological qualities of object.
The exhibition derives from a residency at Glasgow Women’s Library where the collection and archive served as a repository from which Lauren Printy Currie drew material and inspiration to make a new body of work for the Travelling Gallery.
Exploring feminist self-organising and economies of production, this work will endeavor to respond to the materiality and immateriality of the archive as an entity constantly in flux, which adds to, performs, removes and reconfigures its contents. The artist will consider experiences that have been marginalised and explore the defining principles of the creation of cultural archives.
