Captain Lightfoot Presents...

The Glasshouse, Lauriston Castle, 2a Cramond Road South, Edinburgh, EH4 6AD

09|08|14 - 15|08|14

Part of Edinburgh Art Festival

For this project, Captain Lightfoot worked in collaboration with the Learning and Access department of the City of Edinburgh Museum and Galleries to deliver an exhibition of new  work by all three members of Captain Lightfoot and also of invited artists Jessie Makinson and Stephen Kavanagh.


Acting like whispers of a forgotten pleasure, the artworks hinted at the faded stories, secrets and past that belong to the building itself. With a combination of painting, sculpture and photography, the exhibition lead the viewer through the space so that with each new work or structure encountered, another chapter of the Glasshouse may be revealed.

 
Situated within the 30 acres of opulent gardens and parkland surrounding Lauriston Castle, the Victorian Glasshouse is a beautiful and enchanting space to show contemporary art outside of the normal gallery context, with the aim of inspiring critical and creative dialogue between the artists and the public. 

 

Part of Edinburgh Art Festival, the UK's largest annual festival of visual art www.edinburghartfestival.com

 

The production of my work was support by The City of Edinburgh Council & Creative Scotland (Edinburgh Visual Artists Award).
