Glasgow workshop with Kevin Harman.
Artist Kevin Harman will be holding a workshop in Glasgow on Thursday 17th of June as part of The Dream Factory exhibition and nationwide series of workshops.
Kevin Harman, the third son of a second-generation butcher, grew up in one of the estates that surround Edinburgh. He is known as the guy who stole 200 doormats and smashed a scaffolding pole through a gallery window before exhibiting the results. Kevin Harman may cause controversy, but his artwork has proven to be far more constructive than destructive.
Focused around sculpture, Kevin “roots out hidden beauty” within items, such as skip debris, which he reconstructs into striking forms. With an essence of performance in the making of his work, Kevin encourages interaction between individuals and communities whilst challenging points of view.
Kevin has had no end of debate and controversy surrounding him ever and he’ll use this session to share the stories he normally can’t talk about.
There will be a talk by Kevin followed by a Q & A and drinks.
