“GENERATORprojects‘ annual group exhibition, They Had 4 Years, features newly commissioned work by recent graduates across Scotland. TH4Y 2019 features six emerging artists from The Glasgow School of Art, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, and Edinburgh College of Art and aims to provide a supportive platform in which the artists can continue to develop their craft whilst gaining an invaluable insight into exhibiting outside of an educational environment. The pairing of the selected artists intends to create an exciting discourse about the complex relationships between the human and the domestic space and the interactions with the objects found within.”
In Domain, FK McLoone aims to explore domestic spaces where the individual feels most empowered to make change, where there is a sense of personal ownership, and where there is most control. Looking through the lens of home improvement media, which promises creative fulfilment, upward mobility, and inner peace through consumption, destruction, and continual renewal, their response takes form in a stream-of-consciousness publication, equal parts critique and fascination. Reconfigured imagery and freeform text explore themes of domestic labour, the dangers of small spaces and the virtues of transformation, while incorporating artwork, writing and ideas from each of the artists in TH4Y.
