GSS where commisoned to make a series of sculptures for artist Nicolas Deshayes as part of the programme here in 2015.
The sculptures are cast in solid Jesmonite, embedded with internal pipework, from forms created by Deshayes using expanding polyurethane foam. This is one of GSS’ most ambitious commissions to date. The sculptures are simultaneously functional radiators. Each is attached to the existing water pipes in the gallery, creating a cycle between sculpture, building and industrial boiler. The work was produced on site by the artist and the GSS technical team.
Darling, Gutter. was Deshayes’ first solo exhibition in Scotland.
