The Sculpture Show

  • 17th December 2011 − 24th June 2012 | Modern One (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art)

Roger Hiorns

Untitled (2010)

Sculpture is displayed throughout the grounds of Modern One and Two. Roger Hiorns’ Untitled (2010) has been installed in the grounds of Modern One especially for this exhibition. In Untitled, two decommissioned aircraft engines from a military surveillance plane which saw service over Afghanistan, are shown side by side. Concealed inside the engines is a prescription of crushed pharmaceuticals used to treat depression. The work makes reference to the creation and alleviation of anxiety on both a global and individual level.

Untitled was originally commissioned by the Art Institute of Chicago and this is the first showing of the work in the UK. We are very grateful to the Arts Council Collection for their generosity in supporting this display.
