Gallery Malmo: Bildungsroman

Gallery Malmo is an ongoing collaboration between the artists Theo Christy and Gregor Horne. Their latest installation, Bildungsroman, in an environment inspired by the marginal and often subversive activity of less frequented, although still public spaces of the urban cycle paths and the digital backwaters of the blogosphere

The title refers to a literary genre that focuses on the psychological and moral growth of the protagonist from youth to adulthood, in which character change is important. Here the artists have brought the cycle path that runs past the back of ESW into the gallery. Cloaked in a canopy of enigmatic but loaded for words they have created a space which is at once both exciting and sinister, a stage set for a coming of age.

The exhibition will be open from 7 August and be visible from Hawthornvale.

Founded in 2018, Gallery Malmo is an artists’ collective that consists of Theo Christy and Gregor Horne. They run various projects and exhibitions from their space in Muirhouse, Edinburgh and are currently looking for new ‘collaborators’.
