Lecture on Nesting

Andy Holden is an award-winning artist. His father, Peter, is an ornitholgist and author who after a forty year career at the RSPB was awarded an MBE for services to conservation.

LECTUREONNESTING_COL#2E2638Father and son have got together to produce Lecture on Nesting, a collaborative performance providing a detailed insight into how birds construct their nests and proposing an analagous way of thinking about material, site and the form of an object. The event takes place at Central Library on Saturday 12th January, 3 – 4pm.

The performance lecture coincides with the opening of Andy’s new solo-exhibition Folly and Landscape (working title) at Collective. Documentation of the Lecture on Nesting will form part of the gallery presentation, shown alongside a collection of the specimens discussed by father and son.

This event forms part of the Collective’s New Work Scotland Programme (NWSP) and has been developed by Frances Stacey, the NWSP Curatorial Development Intern.

Places are free but limited. Book online to reserve your space.

Andy’s solo exhibition is on at Collective from 12 January – 10 February 2013. You can see more of his work on his website.
