Baggy trousers: New ex­hi­bi­tion takes in­spi­ra­tion from 1936 Char­lie Chap­lin film and global recession

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

Tom Leitch stud­ies the work of Amanda Ross-ho, whose ex­hi­bi­tion opens to­day at the Tramway in Glas­gow. The artist’s sculp­tural work en­com­passes a di­verse range of me­dia and typ­i­cally com­bines the hand-made with the ready-made.

This ex­hi­bi­tion presents a new body of work, in­spired in part by Char­lie Chap­lin’s po­lit­i­cal com­edy Mod­ern Times, which was made in 1936 dur­ing the great global recession. The in­stal­la­tion takes the form of a fac­tory floor ded­i­cated to the pro­duc­tion of over­sized gar­ments and in­verts no­tions of time, labour and econ­omy.
