Abigale Neate Wilson and Fionn Duffy introduce their work Bleachfield, based in and drawing inspiration from the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. The collaborative project (Alex Kuusik, Josie Rae Turnbull, Mikey Cook & Sharif Elsabagh also showing work) draws together research on the history and various uses of the Gardens.
Bleachfield was part of the Glasgow Open House Art Festival, which ran from the 1st to the 4th May, exhibiting artworks across Glasgow in a variety of venues, from flats to industrial spaces. Glasgow Open House is an artist-led, not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Glasgow School of Art alumna Amalie Silvani-Jones in 2013. It was formed in order to meet the practical needs of the city’s grassroots art community and takes its lead from Glasgow’s already prevalent ‘Do-It-Yourself’ culture in relation to visual art and music.
