'Truce For A Space'
15th May – 25th June 2013
Karen Grant's first solo exhibition at A.Gallery Glasgow, presented an opportunity to view the artist's recent body of work 'Truce For A Space'.
Grant graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2012, and has since exhibited in many group exhibitions, including 'Radius 6' at the CCA, Glasgow, and at the Candid Arts Center in London.
'Truce For A Space' sees Grant take over the entire A.Gallery with a selection of oils on boards, stretched linens and a 10ft hanging sculpture titled 'LOL Bear'. Inspiration comes from two main sources, Social media imaginary and the writings of Samuel Beckette.
Within the exhibition of 28 new works, Karen Grant transposes Beckett’s description onto today’s sculpting of personal identities through social networking. This exhibition is a contemporary examination of the impact of consumption and production of digital imagery on shaping our identity.
