Sharmanka present a static display of Eduard Bersudsky's kinetic sculptures that spring to life in 35 or 60 minute performances of music, movement and light.
Seen by thousands across Europe, this unique set of moving sculptures from the renowned artist, Eduard Bersudsky, is coming home to Glasgow. Gothic Kinetic will be installed alongside the permanent collection at Sharmanka Kinetic Theatre at Trongate 103 from June to November 2012. Made with Victorian household machinery and carved wooden figures the set plays an 18 minute show reflecting on the human condition in the modern world.
The sculptures come alive with a multitude of characters and are arresting, serious, rich in myth and have a wicked sense of humour. Complemented by eerie lighting and music, this is a piece of theatre that shouldn't be missed.
Handy city centre location.
Part of the Merchant City Festival.
