|Abstract: ||The Glamour was commissioned by the Berlin Biennale for this survey of international contemporary art. The Glamour at the Berlin Biennale was a continuation of The Glamour project that was first initiated at Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (2000). The Glamour is composed of a set of devices – mirrored styrene sheets, pink fluorescent lights and barbed wire – that can be deployed in a variety of forms, depending on space and context. At the Berlin Biennale, these devices were configured to create a spectacle that drew attention to itself as spectacle. The devices themselves are materials that refer to a history of expanded art practice from the 1960s and to the ubiquity of such materials in contemporary installation art. As such, each time The Glamour is presented, a theatricalised situation is created which allows for active reflection of the systems and codes that determine contemporary installation art. The Glamour has since become a component in larger installations that utilise the variety of motifs within our practice, for example our installation for “Scotland and Venice” (2005).|
