David Dale Gallery 161 Broad Street G40 2QR Glasgow United Kingdom
Working within creative, menial, domestic and administrative labour Rachel Adams’s installation, with iterations in Glasgow and Sheffield, considers the linked systems that govern both the natural and manmade world and the possibilities where the two intersect. We are surrounded by incomprehensible systems, that detail not only the current shifts in society and technology, but also the environment and the natural world. Adams’s work exists at the collapse of boundaries between the natural and the synthetic, and the role technology and labour play in this breakdown.
This exhibition has been produced in partnership with Bloc Projects, Sheffield. ‘Lowlight’ by Rachel Adams will run from the 5th til 22nd October 2018 at Bloc Projects.
