ARTISTIC BODIES 1
Collins Gallery, Glasgow Identity/Desire represents the body from ‘alternative viewpoints’ as a
counter attack against the many media
images which assault us every day. The female body in particular is probed, examined and in one case literally prized open in rejection of glossy stereotypes. In contrast to advertising and consumer-orientated image-making which more otten than not uses the body as a hanger for cosmetics, clothes and pose, the exhibition subtracts from the surface. But in collecting together these
revealing, sometimes raw images, the I
show adopts the flicker of the media, flitting relentlessly from one
preoccupation to the next. Ideas bump
and bounce around the comfy Collins slightly out of control.
On one side ofthe room, Amanda Faulkner's nightmarish icons portray women from the inside out, enslaved by twisted sexuality and horrifying fertility. 0n the otherside, Roberta
Graham’s Iightboxes cross-section the , body revealing its interiorto be a
mysterious landscape of arterial
‘ canals and coloured ribbons of muscle.
In between there are Helen Chadwick’s
f tender sculptures of pressed memories, Mary Kelly’s Extase panels from her Interim project (Part1 was seen atthe Fruitmarket last year), and Gwen Hardie’s fecund red torso, swirling with life.
The ambiguity of the title is taken to

its limit in Boyd Webb’s large colour 4 photograph ‘Replenish’. Is pouring
cream down a guttering a masculine or
fertility symbol? A bizarre rite. Altogether, 18 artists take part in an
exhibition of 24 pieces, 2 videos and 1
1 performance. It’s an ambitious
undertaking for such a condensed format. Though many questions are raised, few identities seem resolved or
ucovered [and without prior knowledge
of the artists’ work (not easy in Scotland) its barrage of ideas could be bewildering.
Nigel Walsh, the Scottish Arts Council’s first trainee exhibition organiser devised and selected this exhibition, the final project in a two-year programme. He leaves Scotland shortly to take up a post with Leeds Art Gallery. (Alice Rain)
