Morag Muego @ Pollock House

D&G artist Morag Muego is one of the artists in the exhibition 'New Perpectives'  at Pollok House (Glasgow) - starting: 
Saturday March 17th 2012 
An exhibition of twelve site specific artworks, inspired by items from the collection of this Georgian country house, owned by the National Trust for Scotland. 
This selective event has attracted artists from across the UK and includes ceramics, sculpture, tapestry and screenprint. 
Morag Muego - Hannah Maxwell's Scrapbox
This piece is a response to the five folio volumes of scraps made by Lady Maxwell in the 1800’s. The box is a place to keep her scrapbooking things together – paste bottle and brush, scissors and packets of contemporary clippings, sorted by the genres she used.

In addition to the scrapbox, Morag has filled the room’s two long display cabinets with drifts of paper, made by cutting out the name Hannah Ann. These represent the trace of her labours and evoke her presence by her name’s absence.
The exhibition continues until 31st March. Pollok House is in Pollok Country Park, Glasgow. Open daily from 10 – 5. Admission is free during the exhibition dates.
