A Temporary Art Installation by Gardner & Gardner: From Time to Time

Date: Monday 13 September - Friday 15th October
Venue: University Memorial Chapel
Artists in residence: Tuesdays and Fridays 11am - 4pm
Calligraphy Corner Drop-in and reflection: Mondays 15:00 - 17:00

Gardner & Gardner present ‘From time to time….’ in the unique, contemplative environment of the 1929, University of Glasgow Memorial Chapel.  The kinetic installation is a visual meditation on text found in the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.  Originally written in Hebrew, sometime between the 5th and 2nd Century B.C, the ancient text catalogues in fourteen couplets the times and seasons of human experience, not instructional but observational. 

Listen to Ecclesiastes ch3 vv1-8 read in English by Ishbel McFarlane, performer and theatre maker: You Tube link

The couplets, transposed onto paper, are set within the tension and balance of a mobile; its movement causing the perforated words to be both revealed and obscured.  

‘From time to time…’ invites us to pause and consider the world as it is. There is wisdom in giving such attention and doing so can help us navigate the sorrows and the joys of human experience.
