The Arches presents
Tue 18 Jun - Tue 9 Jul 2013 | Mon-Sat, 11am-late | Free
Yuck ‘n Yum is Scotland’s soi-disant premiere art zine, a distribution conduit for emerging artists both nationally and internationally.
Following a talent-packed launch night of performance and music, the collective are exhibiting work from their Summer Edition zine in the Arches foyer from 19th June until Mon 22nd July, featuring work from cover artist Cos Ahmet (see below) as well as Stefan Blomeier, Bob Flambé and Steaming Turd and TYCI Collective.
Exhibition open Mon-Sat, 11am ’til late in the Arches foyer
Cos Ahmet‘s works form a series of body dialogues, exploring layers of the tangible male form by way of collage. Focusing on the principle themes of self, sexuality and encounter, Cos constructs a discourse between the physical and unconscious body; shaping and shifting the personal element into gestured, sexualized and fragmented anthologies. Cos currently lives and works in London.

Mysterious maths extraordinaire hailed from Dun Déagh (by way of Denmark), not much is known of Stefan Blomeier other than that he dabbles with enchanting audio visual mixes.
TYCI is a new, Glasgow-based, all-female collective dedicated to exploring and celebrating all things femme. As well as a website focusing on art, theatre, music, film, politics, current affairs and most things in between, the group produces a zine, puts on club nights and has a radio show on Subcity Radio.

“Where can you see tomorrow’s work today? The answer is The Arches.”
Producing and presenting risk-taking work from local and international artists and companies, the building has boasted performances over the past two years from Derevo, The TEAM and Taylor Mac, hosted the National Review of Live Art and New Territories festivals and seen blistering performances from boundary-pushing artists and companies such as John Moran, Adrian Howells, Ontroerend Goed and Quarantine as part of 2010’s BEHAVIOUR festival, our annual celebration of the live experience.
The Arches is also Scotland’s leading provider of support for emergent artists and performance practitioners, providing a year-long programme of opportunities including Artist in Residence programmes and our two annual awards, Platform 18: New Directions and the Brick Award, as well as showcasing raw work from homegrown talent such as Nic Green and Rob Drummond in Arches LIVE, our annual festival of brave new work.
Our dedicated Creative Learning programme offers even further-reaching opportunities for development across a broad range of social groups, with events ranging from urban music production course Tigerstyle and the newly launched Arches Community Choir, to mentoring schemes, professional development projects and off-site performance work with diverse social groups.
Words from Jackie Wylie, The Arches’ Artistic Director, following the tragic death of Adrian Howells:
“All at The Arches are devastated by the loss of Adrian Howells this week. He was our Artist in Residence and The Arches was his creative home. But more than that, he was a dear friend and companion in life to many of us here.
So many would say that there truly was no one like him, who personified love, generosity and the deepest type of empathy and desire to understand those lucky enough to have met him. With great humour he was able to create an instant connection with anyone he encountered. He was able to translate this desire to nurture and connect into his performance practice and in doing so leaves behind not only an incredible and influential body of work but a multitude of audience members across the world who have in some way been transformed by these encounters.
He supported, encouraged and was at the heart of an entire community of artists in Glasgow who will miss him terribly.”
