1: Exhibition
Venue: Collective Gallery
Artist: Mick Peter
Title: Lying and Liars
Dates: Thursday 2 August - Sunday 30 September
Admission: Free
Gallery Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday, 11am-5pm

Lying and Liars is a new installation created specifically for Collective by Glasgow-based artist Mick Peter. The exhibition title is derived from British novelist B.S.Johnson's idea that narrative fiction is a form of 'lying' and the show explores the conflict between storytelling and formal experimentation by mixing different sculptural and architectural idioms.

1: Exhibition
Venue: Collective Gallery
Artist: Simon Martin
Title: Louis Ghost Chair
Dates: 9 June - 22 July

Admission: Free
Gallery Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday, 11am-5pm

Collective present a new film work by Simon Martin. The iconic object at the heart of Simon Martin's seventeen-minute film Louis Ghost Chair, is the classic design of the Louis XV armchair. The film considers the chair’s contemporary afterlife in the form of Philippe Starck’s updated ‘Louis Ghost Chair’. From antique period-piece to modern-day style accessory, the chair’s transition from wood to plastic, from artisan workshop to high-tech assembly line is illuminated with commentary, spoken by a young female actor.

Commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and Holburne Museum, Bath in association with Collective, Edinburgh, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland and Elena Hill. Supported by Arts Council England with additional support from The Henry Moore Foundation.

1: Exhibition
Venue: Collective Gallery
Artist: Grace Schwindt
Title: Tenant
Dates: Saturday 21 April – Sunday 27 May
Admission: Free
Gallery Opening Times: Tuesday - Sunday, 11am-5pm

Collective are premiering Grace Schwindt’s new film, Tenant. Tenant takes an interview as a starting point that the artist conducted with her grandparents. It tells the story of a woman who rented a room in their home during the Second World War and who turned out to be a friend of Vladimir Lenin. From this interview, the artist developed a fictional dialogue script for the film. Using minimal theatrical sets, the artist invades these sets with dancers and together they carry out a complex choreography while speaking the dialogue. They wear costumes that disrupt and challenge the norms of the environment.
Tenant was commissioned by FLAMIN Productions and co-produced by CITY PROJECTS with support from COLLECTIVE.

2: Exhibition
Artist: Fiona Jardine
Title: Five Foot Shelf

Five Foot Shelf aims to generate comparisons between knowledge and trade, playing with notions of visibility and legality; circuits of production, encoding and storage. Developed in tandem with a year-long project between Collective, Pist (Istanbul) and Arrow Factory (Beijing), Fiona Jardine presents Five Foot Shelf after a six week residency in Beijing.

3: Exhibition
Artist: James Hutchinson
Title: Proposal for a Warehouse or Towards a Museum of Reorganisation

The exhibition takes the form of a number of shipping crates, each produced in a location where a rapid economic transformation is taking (or has taken) place; a transformation requiring coercive re-organisation at great human or social cost.

Hutchinson addresses the transformation of objects as they move through spaces, carried by the forces of capitalistic flow, and considers how the spaces they move through are themselves transformed to accommodate the flow.

4: Talk/ Event
Title: Soapbox
Speakers: Fiona Jardine (artist), James Hutchinson (artist), Ramon Wilkinson (TPC Freight Management), Lucy Keany (Programme Manager at Ricefield Arts and Cultural Centre), Chi Zhang (calligrapher) and Dr Dominic Paterson (History of Art Lecturer, Glasgow University).
