Arm’s Length Government Body (2016)

Arm’s Length Government Body was a performance conceived in response to and for Céline as a space, a gallery in a flat in Glasgow. The property is owned by Network Rail, an arm’s length government body. The performance followed the pattern of a bedtime routine of a child, but one specific to a contemporary art audience.

[Come in the door puff, phew] Here we are then! [Address one person] Situated in the heart of the City Centre, this is Scotland’s most visited modern art gallery displaying work that highlights the interests, influences and working methods of artists from around the world.

[Change person I am addressing]

The building is steeped, STEEPED in history and the organisation has played a key role in the cultural life of the city for decades.[Motion to wall] Do you want to feel it?

It is a must-see venue for modern and contemporary art. Uhuh it. is!
