David Mach Retrospective. Glasgow Museum of modern Art. Scotland. March 2002

David Mach is one of the most established sculptors in the U.K today.                                                                                              A 6 month retrospective of his work was held at the Glasgow Museum of Modern Art from March 2002. A chance meeting at his studio led to Statham offering to write a soundtrack to accompany the giant mermaid sculpture that would 'dive' through three floors of the museum 

and would be the gateway to the exhibition.10 short piecesof music and 10 pieces of almost silence, to break them up, would run continuously from speakers high in the roof above the sculpture.Each piece of music rises from the bed of silence and then disappears back into it, reflecting the nature of the visual work.
