Glasgow-based artist Jacqueline Donachie has a special interest in healthcare and bio-medical research. She graduated from the Glasgow School of Art’s influential Environmental Art Department in 1991, and is one of a group of artists who helped establish Glasgow in the 1990s as a dynamic contemporary art centre. This exhibition will include ‘Weight’, which Leamington Spa Art Gallery & Museum acquired in 2012 through the Contemporary Art Society’s Acquisition Scheme. The installation, which crosses sculpture, drawings and photographs, resonates visually with some of the medical treatments that previously took place in the Royal Pump Rooms. However the original concept of the work was to respond to muscular dystrophy. Keep Up will also include new works by Donachie and a recently commissioned piece which will respond to the building’s previous history as a medical treatment centre.
