Andrew Miller

Dusk or Dawn

20 July 2012 - 7 October 2012

Andrew Miller is a Glasgow based artist who works across a variety of media including drawing, sculpture, photography and site-specific installation. Miller explores the ambiguous territory between form and function.

Additional Information

Miller salvages worn, discarded and redundant materials – objects and architectural fragments - and re-assembles them, charging them with an unfamiliar presence that prompts questions about use, context and value.

Dusk or Dawn comprises two new works made especially for the exhibition and in response to BALTIC 39 gallery. The first, You me something else 2012, is a canopy of bunting that traverses the gallery as a line drawing in space.  Throughout the summer our high streets and pubs are laden with bunting to celebrate events from the Queen’s Jubilee, Euro 2012, Wimbledon and the Olympics. Miller re-works these ubiquitous celebratory markers using second-hand and donated clothing to question their possible meanings – yet his is a celebration with nothing apparent to celebrate.

The second work, Other People’s Time 2012, takes its title from a body of work first developed in 1992 made of found timber fragments that once existed as some greater, functional whole. In dialogue with You me something else, material history, labour and use value are all suggested. Miller has used electrical tape as a form of drawing for eighteen years and for this work he has used aluminium tape, harnessing its reflective qualities to implicate the viewer as they navigate the gallery and cause the appearance of the work to perpetually shift.
