We thought we would share a title from the Artists’ Books Collection by Finnish artist Pilvi Takala, called Event on Garnethill, to coincide with her first solo show in Scotland at the CCA as part of Glasgow International.
The book chronicles a performance by the artist in 2004 where she dressed up in a catholic school uniform and spent time on the streets amongst school children. It features images of school uniform, maps of Garnethill, and transcripts of conversations with teachers.
Pilvi Takala’s solo show is an overview of her work over the last ten years, but it will specifically focus on the same work in Garnethill as is featured in the book. The show is open from Friday 8 April to Sunday 15 2016 at the CCA. Event on Garnethill is currently on loan to the exhibition, but will be available to view after by appointment.
