Paul McDevitt curates ‘Du coq à l’âne’ (‘from cock to ass’)
Paul McDevitt and Cornelius Quabeck have worked together for more than 20 years on collaborative projects ranging from curation to exhibitions of works that they have created together. For this curatorial project, the artists take as their starting point the idea of exchanging cities: Paul the Scotsman who lives in Berlin, and Cornelius the German in Glasgow. Focussing on these important centres of artistic production, the exhibition shows how artists today participate in the dynamic activity of the cities in which they live.
'Du coq à l'âne' presents a varied selection of recent work by ten visual artists based in the cities of Glasgow and Berlin. Artists included are Andrew Cranston, Andrew Kerr, Victoria Morton, Ciara Phillips, and Cornelius Quabeck from Glasgow; and Tamina Amadyar, Birgit Megerle, Matthias Schaufler, Alexander Wagner, and Paul McDevitt from Berlin.
