Join artist in residence Laura Hudson on a journey in search of jings! 1. Those magical Jings that sound a lot like things; the signs, symbols and forms that can be found in the work of Alan Davie.
During her residency, Laura will be working on an Archive of Uncertain Jings. Through speculative analysis, a playful taxonomy for each of the jings will be devised to form a fictional keepers chart.
We invite anyone interested in words or pictures to join the artist on a highly speculative and humorous journey into knowing and not knowing, searching for Jings! in the work of Alan Davie.
This is a free drop-in, pop-in opportunity to hang out, join in, make pictures, make words, discuss jings! spend time looking and thinking. All welcome.
1 jings! is a Scottish interjection used as an exclamation of surprise or in lieu of swearing, a word that seems to be playfully apt for Alan Davie’s enigmatic signs, forms and symbols.
