Eccentric Limbs

Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop

Eccentric Limbs is an exhibition of new work by the artist Andrew Gannon.

Motivated by the decision to centre disability, this new work has focused on the visibility of and stigmas around his own congenital limb difference. 

Eccentric Limbs is a series of works comprising plaster casts of the artist’s arm to which different materials have been added to create absurd, useless things which challenge ideas of what a disability object might be. What is a prosthesis if it is neither functional nor cosmetic? 

These objects are made quickly, on the artist’s body using perceived absence as the site of production to create works that unpick his experience of limb difference and societal attitudes towards disability.

Once taken off these innately performative objects become sculpture, which in turn refer to the body in absence

Andrew Gannon, b. 1980, Lives and works in Edinburgh and has been a studio holder at ESW since 2015. Previous exhibitions include Stand Up!, Centre Pompidou, Paris, (2015) No Reading No Cry! Museum of the City of Skopje, Macedonia, (2015) and Slight Works, part of Open Out, The Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh, (2018).

Supported by Creative Scotland and City of Edinburgh Council.
