5.May – 3.Jun 2023
Opening: Friday 5th May, 6 - 8.30pm
Ali Glover’s site based interventions consider how architectural infrastructures can shift aspects of behaviour and psychological patterns. The installation for Commonage acts as an intermediary or side space, like that of a page margin, where idle thoughts get passed from the periphery into the main. He is interested in how forms of language (architectural, image or sonic) used in those in-between moments can lead to something from being overlooked to visible.
Glover makes reference to particular aspects of the space by borrowing familiar or institutional elements such as the floor tiles, security lights and exposed stud walls. Articulated through field recordings of hauntings in urban environments, he collapses moments from these actualities into cerebral spaces or daydreams.
London based artist Ali Glover (b. 1993 West Midlands) graduated from Chelsea College of Art in 2015 and completed the MFA Fine Art programme at Goldsmiths in 2022. In early 2022 he was commissioned by Harshadha Balasubramanian and Caraboo Projects to develop an audio work in response to descriptions of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. Further in the year he will be developing a project at Z/KU Berlin for 3 months. Glover is also part of F.A.F, a collective formed by himself, Henry Burns and Ruairi Fallon. They will be showing at Staffordshire St Gallery from the 20.4.23 – 7.5.23
