Rachel Mimiec: PLOUGH

Rachel Mimiec: PLOUGH
Date: 21 February – 27 May 2013
Space: Gallery 3

This exhibition presented Rachel Mimiec’s studio interest working with paint and appropriated images from National Geographic magazines.

Included in the installation were works made by children during workshops, which she ran at the Red Road Family Centre nursery in Glasgow, and Horatio McCulloch’s 1866 landscape Loch Maree from Glasgow Museums’ collection. The juxtaposition of her artworks with the children’s paintings and the McCulloch landscape raises questions about the expression of her diverse practice, both solo and community. This is set against the historical backdrop of landscape painting and our relationship with nature.

The Learning and curatorial team worked with Mimiec to develop a programme of talks and workshops that responded to themes in her current inquiry. In an exciting departure for the team there were a range of speakers including Cameron McNeish and Gordon Buchanan responding to themes in Rachel’s exhibition. More details are on the PDF of the leaflet for PLOUGH.
