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.

Classified Ads Exhibition Series

reveal an intimate glimpse into the lives of the advertisers. This is advertising on the most human and least corporate scale possible.

 Valuably Human.

To take these advertisements out of their original context and present them as gallery pieces is to recognise the cultural complexity of the individual and to place a value on each narrative.

Cultural Narrative.

In reacting both to the objects advertised, and to what is revealed about the advertiser, the viewer’s own gaze reveals reflections of absurdity and honesty, of passion and obsession. There is at once kitsch and treasure, pathos and courage.
