‘Real Life’, 2020
Performance / Installation
In 1994 the Scottish artist Ross Sinclair had the words ‘Real Life’ tattooed across his back. The tattoo went on to feature prominently, and define much of his work produced over the subsequent decades. Here is a simulacrum of Ross Sinclair, currently living its realest life in the gardens behind Gallery 46, unperturbed by the lockdown because unlike the ‘Real’ Ross Sinclair this version doesn’t have mucus membranes or respiratory tract and is therefore completely unaffected by Covid 19.
LIMINALITY with GALLERY46 present a series of new works dealing with the themes of incubation, self isolation, modes of liminality, meditation, restrictions and freedoms.
In a mode of LIMINALITY we are compelled to ask questions, to mediate on how we will transverse and embrace the mystery and power of transition.
Of what has been and what will become…
Let us enter this Liminal space, collectively.
Where we are free to roam in transcendent modes.
Free to activate the imaginal.
Free to [START DREAMING] again
Limited editioned exhibition posters by the individual artists involved in the series will be available to buy. Details to follow.
