Scottish Art Since 1900 L'ntil 24 September. Far more of the national collection is on show than ever before. with the entire (iallery given over to this major exhibition tracing the development of Scottish Art in the 20th century. The two polesof
Robert Callender, Talbot Rice Art Centre, Edinburgh.
Made in Scotland from girders? The answer is ‘no' but you could be forgiven ior making that wrong assumption when you iirst encounter this Edinburgh-based artist's recent work: giant rusting gates, rudders and the halt-dissolved skeletal remains oi a ship dominate the clean, white spaces oi the gallery. It is only upon closer inspection that the light dawns: these are not ‘iound' objects but instead have been built by the artist irom cardboard, paper and paint to create an eiiect not unlike a theatre set. The ‘Sea Salvage’ oi the exhibition’s title reiers to the artist’s Iiielong fascination with beachcombing and invites us to look at these relics of the sealaring communities more closely, enjoy their texture and colour and ‘discoverthem the way I (Callender) have discovered them in my own mind.‘ The works are guaranteed to strike a chord with anyone who has come across a rotting hull or a piece of driitwood on a beach and wondered what story it has to tell. As a counterpoint to these enormous,
‘industrial' works there is a second side to the exhibition. Quieter and more human in scale it has boat fragments part buried on the sea bed or hastily bundled together for scrap. Particularly poignant is the ‘Sea Box’, embellished with a beautifully painted old ship, yet containing another representation of (the same?) ship now wrecked and lying on its side. These smaller works locus on the role at the ship as protector and provider yet, like mankind, able to be destroyed by the sea or to die a lingering death through neglect. In contrast a work such as ‘Shut Out' with its rusting closed gates speaks of the decline at shipbuilding and related industries in the wider context at unemployment and social exclusion.
Like the other, more ieted, paper boat launched earlier this year on Clydeside the exhibition is a powerful and dignified monument to a way oi lite in decline and an aiiirmation oi the skills and traditions which are in danger of being lost with it. (Alison King)
