Pieces of You Are Here
“Pieces of You Are Here will mark Scottish artist Lorna Macintyre’s first solo exhibition in a major UK institution in which she will debut a new body of work commissioned specifically for Gallery 2 at DCA.
Macintyre uses a broad spectrum of references – including literature, archaeology, Greek mythology and symbolism – as sources of inspiration for photographic and sculptural works. Often her work evolves as a response to source material that is language based – a phrase in a novel or a line in a poem. These references form a kind of oblique structure behind a piece of work, lending a form for a composition or providing the impetus behind her choice of materials.”
