About the event
“Pam's bedroom, September 1995. My First Existential nightmare. Good, bad. Luck, destiny. Right, wrong. Rich, poor. Success, failure. Happy, sad. Higher powers, the meaning of life. Judgement day. Sense of self. Heaven and hell. Expressed via the lens of Pam aged 8.”
For Sandwich, this exhibition presents her work to the public for the very first time. Working primarily in installation and model making, Sandwich expresses her vision of fear, loss, and superstition, and the universal childhood realisation of your own mortality, through the medium of the birthday party.
New paintings and textile works by Glasgow based artists The Kirkwood Brothers, Jonny and Jordon, form the other half of this exhibition. Continuing to build upon the central themes of their work; neurodiversity, mental health and humour, the Brothers have collaborated with Sandwich on their mutual interest in popular culture from their childhoods. The continued rise in the Cost of Living and the frustrations that come with it are the focus of their new work, looking closely at its impact on them and the world around them.
This exhibition is the conclusion to a six month period of research and development by the artists, supported by Cabbage through it's Resilience Programme. In addition to funding, the programme offers tailored support to its artists from Cabbage's artist led team. This year, this included Critical Friend sessions with Liv Fontaine and Nina Mdwaba, a Captioning Workshop from Sean Patrick Campbell, and exhibition making support from Jenny Tipton and James Jimbo. More information on the Resilience Programme can be found here.
