Mythical Political at Fire Station Creative in Dunfermline brings together a number of notable names on the Scottish and international art scene with members of an exciting artist collective; David Mach RA, Liane Lang, Jim Lambie, Adrian Wiszniewski RSA, Alison Harper and Sandy Moffat OBE RSA are showing alongside the six-woman collective Splint.

The twelve artists are connected by the Essential School of Painting (ESOP) in London, where Artistic Director Alison Harper says, ‘The model of artists and their recent students undertaking projects together is an exciting one, which celebrates the intergenerational relationships formed by effective art school teaching.’

The exhibition was conceived by sculptor David Mach, who is from Fife and teaches at ESOP. His work takes inspiration from the old Fire Station itself, as will that of Splint member Emma O’Rourke, who traces the building’s connection to the ballerina and actress Moira Shearer and her role in the 1948 film The Red Shoes.
