Dada wears the pants
Forecast is an exhibition oi new work by Ziie Walker, Deirdre McCloskey and Mairead McCloskey - three young female artists working in Glasgow. Upon entering, the first thing that strikes you are Mairead’s giant photographic portraits of skin: Strain, Lattice and Seam. Images of the imprints that clasps, buckles and tight elastic can leave behind, they show the literal constraints or bindings imposed on the female form by women’s clothing. Engaging though the prints are, they become less a statement about costume than extolling the pleasures of nudity - you can’t help think: ‘Thank God they’ve taken those tight pants off.’ The exhibition’s most arresting piece is Ziie Walker’s Dream Bride Floatation Dress, a huge, inflated, plastic wedding gown suspended from the ceiling with its absurdly packaged, vacuum-packed prior self nearby. The cover shows a woman wearing the dress - for rubber doll connoisseurs, this is one you would take home to meet your parents. The piece succeeds in showing how weddings have become a laughable, kitsch and throwaway convention in Western
society. Further afield lies Deirdre McCloskey’s work, which illustrates
vanity gone astray or obscured and includes a series of minors smeared with pink goo (unfortunately defaced by someone who wrote Mick and Cops) and a comb clogged full of old hair called Comb (ills) 191 6. llearby is a piece of tissue paper on a glass plinth, entitled Cast of Sex. Art for art’s sake? ‘Yes very much so,’ replies artist Deirdre McCloskey. ‘The piece is in answer to Duchamp’s cast of the insides of the female genitals. This is the outside.’
This is where the exhibition as a whole falls down. Where Dada was based on challenging artistic conventions, this is based on knowing artistic conventions, and you wonder: ‘Who are you telling this to?’
Certainly not the Glasgow workman who was squinting through the doorway, asking why there was a photograph of a giant tummy next to a floor of whining geraniums. He didn’t come in. (flick Dewar)
