This summer's exhibition at the Glasgow School of Art Reid Ground Floor Corridor will focus on the bestial, existential and instinctual side of our political and civil life. The space will be transformed into an assembly platform created by a single artist, Prabhakar Pachpute, and inspired by the literary work of Johnny Rodger. For the past few years, Johnny Rodger has been using the form of the modern prose poem fable in order to come at the question of the 'contemporary' through the very different angle of literary form. There is now a collection of twenty of these modern fables. They are assembled together in the book which accompanies the show, also titled 'Political Animal'.
For the occasion of this exhibition, Prabhakar Pachpute presents a new series of work commissioned by GSA, CCA, The Drouth, Leverhulme International Network of Contemporary Studies and Prince Claus Fund, to accompany the publishing of the book 'Political Animal'.
