Lots of great images images from yesterday’s performance of Electrical Appliance by David Sherry. It was an exciting day for GoMA, as this was one of two performances we have bought from David for the Contemporary Art Collection. It is the first performance that Glasgow Museums has bought and represents an exciting new path for our aquistions.

There were loads of fantastic comments from visitors and one school group were even able to discuss the work as part of their visit exploring sculptures and materials they are made from. They decided that this was real and made of ‘meat, bones and skin’.
Dave gave a talk later on in the evening which gave a greater insight into his thinking on this work and recent drawings, films and performances.
