Our current exhibition, British Art Show 8, is well underway here at Inverleith House, as well as at partner venues, Talbot Rice, University of Edinburgh, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Modern One). The show has been attracting lots of visitors to the gallery and the Royal Botanic Garden’s glasshouses, where the exhibition extends.
Displayed amongst the foliage of the Victorian Palm House, are a series of life-like ceramic sculptures by the young London-based artist, Jesse Wine which have been commissioned specifically for the Edinburgh glasshouses. Part Figurative, part abstract, these sculptures appear like shady characters lurking in the undergrowth of the palm house.
More of Jesse Wine’s ceramics can be seen inside Inverleith House, along with works by Caroline Achaintre, Pablo Bronstein, Nicolas Deshayes, Simon Fujiwara, Martino Gamper, Anthea Hamilton, Charlotte Prodger, James Richards, Patrick Staff and Bedwyr Williams.
The exhibition is open Tuesday – Sunday, 10am – 5.30pm, and runs to 8th May 2016.
