Maker’s Mark at No Format Gallery [Group Show]

Inconclusive Drawing [see the video here] is a video record of abstract marks on acetate made to explore the tensions between creation and destruction, asking what we create in the act of destruction and what is destroyed when we create? Part animation, part live action and with an improvised soundtrack created as a response to the dynamic of the work’s progression and to its subsequent transformation.

Andrew Gallacher has a Master’s Degree in Fine Art from the University of Kent and his work has been exhibited at Tate Modern. He is an audio-painter, text-sculptor and image-wrangler exploring the liminal interstice between constructed narrative and periphrastic assembly.

Muster Station
The House of Beautifully Earned Trust

2018 Starts in the HB cinema and continues on a short walk
Is this a new form of Airbnb or a regular family home? Yes.
Is it a protest or a celebration? No.
Do they love art or seek to destroy it? Yes.
Who is the family? No. What year is this? Yes. Why do they need visitors? No. Who’s actually in charge around here? No. What does it mean for our future? Yes. And so on? Maybe.
Muster Station is a rethinking and regrouping; an evolving group of artists that emerged from the closure of their art school at the University of Kent. As a sequel to (and inversion of) the School of Beginnings held at Tate Modern, (February, 2018), the Muster Station artists ask you to now put your trust in them, to show you a video, a sound, a walk and a home; The House of Beautifully Earned Trust.Muster Station, the School of Beginnings and The House of Beautifully Earned Trust were initiated by Whitstable-based artist, Adam Chodzko.

Andrew Gallacher: Data for Data’s Sake



I will deliver spirited readings of this data. Perhaps I will stand at a lectern and be lit theatrically. I may wear a costume – perhaps academic robes, or a clerical surplice, or the evening dress of a concert tenor. These performances could last about 5 minutes and be performed to fit in with other events taking place in the venue. I envisage 4 such performances on each of the two days.
