Arrange Whatever Pieces Come Your Way


Exhibition Runs: 11 June - 31 July 2021

Open: Tuesday - Saturday, 10.30am - 5.30pm

Sunday 13th: 10.30am - 5.30pm

 

For Glasgow International 2021, Glasgow Print Studio is delighted to present the first major exhibition in Scotland of large-scale quilts by Arrange Whatever Pieces Come Your Way, the collaborative powerhouse of London-based Annabelle Harty and Sheelagh Boyce, who lives and works in Glasgow.

Hand-sewn over hundreds of hours, Harty and Boyce's abstract works are the physical manifestation of a long friendship between the pair. Influenced by collected images, travels, ideas and memories, they use old and loved clothes from friends and family and respond, either in intimate detail or through a broader contextual approach, to the architecture of a building, place or the garments themselves.

“We value the wear of the used clothes and the memories and secrets they hold and try to bring these into the narrative of the quilt. A dark square exposed behind an unpicked faded pocket reminds one of the younger garment/person. The crisp shadow, along with the faded pocket help to tell both sides to the garments stories - much like the front and back of the quilts themselves. We work closely together, and have created a mutual way of seeing that works exclusively to neither of us. Glasgow Print Studio seems the perfect space to launch them out into the world to be viewed, in most cases, for the first time in the flesh.”


Harty and Boyce’s exhibition is a modernist nod to the Glasgow International’s 2021 theme of 'attention' and mirrors the collaborative nature and materiality of printmaking.

 

“There is a happy unity between our work, and the work of the Print Studio, under the theme of GI 2021 ‘Attention’. Having been working with Scott Campbell, Master Printer, on a print for the show, we have noticed many parallels with the working processes - an intimate layering of ideas that make up the whole, where all the constituent parts remain visible - but only if you look for them.”
