For his 2022 exhibition workaround, Glasgow-based artist Charlie Hammond brought together his own paintings with artworks and objects selected from The Hunterian's collection. Among the items he chose to include were a number of worker ant specimens: along with the imagery in his paintings and his other choices, these insects played with the idea of art as one kind of work among others. In this special limited edition print Hammond gathers together visual elements from the exhibition, from office chairs to tea breaks and worker ants.
This print was commissioned in 2018 in response to The Hunterian's exhibition Still Moving: the films and photographs of Ulrike Ottinger. Edinburgh-based artist Stephanie Mann was invited by a group of students from the Masters in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme to develop a work taking Ottinger's practice as a point of reference. She used photographs of Hunterian collection items related to Ottinger's work and combined these in a precariously balanced arrangement which reveals how varied the collection is, and how it lays claim to objects from many different cultural traditions.
60% of the proceeds from sales of Mann's work will be donated by the artist to the Trussell Trust, a charity which provides emergency food and support to people locked in poverty, and campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
