P/////AKT I didn’t think it would turn out this way
David Dale Gallery are excited to present I didn’t think it would turn out this way, an exhibition of artists’ moving image by Glasgow-based artists at P/////AKT, Amsterdam. The exhibition includes six short films by Aman Sandhu, Anne-Marie Copestake, Clarinda Tse, Margaret Salmon, Mathew Wayne Parkin and Renèe Helèna Browne.

I didn’t think it would turn out this way takes its title from an essay on the affective possibilities of intimacy by theorist Lauren Berlant, and presents narratives which orbit the tacit complications of shared experience, and the body in absence and presence.

In I you me we us (2018) Margaret Salmon centres moments of longing and physical togetherness; personal accounts of the influence of inheritance and monstrosity are exposed in Daddy’s Boy (2020) by Renèe Helèna Browne; and local histories considering the necessity for communal recognition are recorded in A love (2019) by Anne-Marie Copestake. In Textures Gestures Meshes Measures (2021), Clarinda Tse considers desires for and experiments with occupation as a form of resistance; Aman Sandhu presents efforts towards a proximity and reshaping of personal-historical narratives in The Magic Roundabout (2021); and Mathew Parkin defines moments of lack, grief and detachment (of the self or another) in Vaseline (2018).

The films will be screened within an environment built by artist collaborators Harriet Rose Morley and Bo Wielders who are based in the Netherlands. There will also be a publication available at P/////AKT and online featuring writing by Aman Sandhu, Mathew Wayne Parkin and Margaret Salmon, and designed by Phoebe Kerr.

I didn’t think it would turn out this way has been programmed by Caitlin Merrett King, Programme Coordinator at David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, as the first part in an organisational exchange with P/////AKT, Amsterdam who will present an exhibition at David Dale Gallery in early 2022.
P/////AKT Amsterdam

P/////AKT is a non-profit exhibition space for contemporary art that organizes and facilitates large scale solo presentations through which the audience gets the opportunity to gain insight in the thinking space of the artists.

P/////AKT provides a platform for exceptional, emerging artistic talents, who distinguish themselves through their unique and authentic language and who are capable of giving a different view on the current way of thinking. They are stimulated to work out new developments and are given the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience. Furthermore, P/////AKT always asks the artists to produce new work that relates to the specific nature and dimensions of the given space and to present their own mental space as an overall presentation within the given context.
