Jill Kennedy: Eyes on the Moon
9 March – 28 April 2012
Space exploration and flight took centre stage in Glasgow-born artist Jill Kennedy’s Eyes on the Moon, whether it was in the form of shuttle launches, satellite orbits, or soccer balls arcing through the air. In a similar manner to her earlier New Educational Series, this exhibition saw Kennedy playing with our expectations of ‘correct’ scale, highlighting the way the reduction or expansion of an object’s size can create a surreal, other-worldly experience. This sense of the bizarre and mysterious was extended as items of the everyday were transported into the impossibly exotic as beach and soccer balls bounced and flew through a star-studded stratosphere, and disembodied panda heads streaked through the sky.
