Rachel Adams @ Tramway
Tramway 5 - front gallery, until 24 March
"For her exhibition at Tramway, Rachel Adams has created an installation of new sculptural works that extends her exploration of the relationship between science fiction, classical sculptural motifs and decorative craft techniques.
Adams joins the aesthetics of sci-fi with an awareness of how certain materials and forms have a specific cultural identity and place within time, particularly craft techniques such as tie dye, macramé and crochet.
The methods employed by TV programmes of the 1970s to produce an “alien” environment are presented as symptomatic of a larger cultural shift, one marked by a growing distrust of the ceaseless progression of technological advancements that defined the preceding decade."
