Our study trip to Glasgow International was informative and useful on many fronts. Looking at the exhibitions in a group situation was a new experience and it was good to get a different perspective on things. My favourite show was at The Modern Institute, Life & The Invitation & Vapour & Debri, the exploration of different modes of showing and making work. Other works which stood out for me were Bedwyr Williams at Tramway and Sue Tompkins at GoMA.
Sue Tompkins pushes the boundaries of the relationship between the written word and visual art, I was interested in her rhythmic word compositions and the way they were displayed alongside pieces of fine art.
Bedwyr Williams dystopian installation/video projection at Tramyard struck a chord, the enormity of the space and the menacing feeling on entry added to the overall affect.
