New Wave - A Collaborative Installation by Janie Nicoll at The Old Hairdressers

In her current exhibition at The Old Hairdressers, Janie Nicoll is inviting visitors to add to the installation by sharing a word or sentence that relates to 'Angst'.

Over the past few days, Janie and Rachel have been sticking newspaper cuttings and extracts from magazines onto the wall of The Old Hairdressers, creating a wave design.

This process was captured in a stop motion animation.

Now it is up to visitors to the exhibition to continue developing the work.

Visual Artist Janie Nicoll will be creating a large scale evolving collaborative installation from 3rd - 11th July at the Old Hairdressers, Stereo, Glasgow.

Using Hokusai's "Wave" as a starting point, combining paint and assemblage, she will be inviting artists and the public to contribute text, image or objects on the theme of 'Angst', to a wall sized installation. Contributions will be added into the installation over the course of the week in a large scale public outpouring, and will contribute to a closing event in collaboration with sound artist Harry Wilson, on Thursday 11th July.

Nicoll uses spontaneity, interaction, and collaboration as a working method while building on recent collaborative residencies in the form of a Rough Mix Residency at Tramway, for Magnetic North Theatre Company and a CCA Creative Lab for Counterflows Music Festival, with experimental Sound Artist Annette Krebs.
