This first solo installation from the Scottish artist was inspired by the building site from which the new Ingleby Gallery sprang. The viewer is confronted by what appears to be loose screws, hanging rawl plugs and an abandoned broom propped up against a wall. In a playful twist on the tendency for artists to transform everyday objects into valuable artworks, on closer inspection the debris in Collis' installation turns out to be composed of precious stones.

Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh, until Wed 24 Sep.

Cheeky installation by the upcoming Scottish artist playing on the building site from which the Ingleby Gallery has recently emerged. What appear to be rawl plugs and paint spatters are revealed to be precious stones.
