Kenny Hunter: A Shout in the Street

Following the popular success of such major works as Citizen Firefighter and Girl with Rucksack, Edinburgh-born Kenny Hunter returns to showcase his works in Scotland after a hiatus of over four years. Both new and reworked sculptural pieces, as well as text based graphic works appear in this Tramway showcase, inspired by the artist’s trademark fascination with nature as he marries the classical form with the everyday.

Tramway, Glasgow, until Sun 24 Aug

A Shout in the Street

  • 4 stars

Witty, subversive sculptures set inside an urban wasteland. Glasgow artist Kenny Hunter fills Tramway 5 with what appears to be detrius, a cityscape ruled by pigeons and feral cats, and compels us to reconsider the waste we usually avoid.
