False Positives (Part 2)

False Positives (part 2)

Tron Theatre, Glasgow, March 2018.

Curated and featuring works by Allegra Salandini, Grace Higgins Brown, Rachel Woodside, and Rebecca Thomson.

False Positives (part 2) was an exhibition of video, sculpture and audio by Allegra Salandini, Grace Higgins Brown, Rachel Woodside, Rebecca Thomson. A collaborative effort to magnify the presence and conversation held in each of our practices:

Ideas of voyeurism and translation are played with as inevitable connotations of the destruction of privacy, and the limits of information-sharing. Questioning these boundaries sees an important inquiry around the ‘spaces in-between’ and how these may hold most significance; how small, specific texts, sounds, smells, sights can trigger fleeting moments, romanticising overlooked relics from everyday life into works art. This all pertains to a dialogue around some kind of gaze, referring to relatively hidden and private transactions to explore how people project their own narratives and the likelihood of falsehood in this, it may be that it is all an artificial gaze.
