Artist and art psychotherapist, Caroline Christie, captures ‘Tiny Territories’ of unnoticed domestic objects and overlooked places. Delicate paper sculptures see familiar items re-made: an iron, a toddler’s dress, child’s boxing gloves, all recreated in wire, paper and stitches. Photographs of lost objects and places caught whilst standing in a play park, walking to the shops. Occasionally sewn words thread through the work. Together these quiet artefacts capture small scale histories.

Tiny Territories, Wednesday 17th April to Thursday 30th May, visit during GWL opening hours

 

Over the last 20 years Caroline Christie has been interested in unnoticed territories. Working in post-conflict countries started her curiosity in boundaries, lines and no-man’s land. Then, as a mother, continuing the work to explore domestic territories.

Whether photographing the lines on a football pitch in Kabul or remaking a family wedding dress in paper, her artwork looks at practical and familiar objects, juxtaposed with another use or meaning.

The art work picks up on Glasgow Women’s Library’s broad archive of ‘protest’ objects; hand-made, sewn and knitted in the home.
