Scott Sutherland building Lecture Theatre SB42

World-renowned Scottish sculptor and installation artist, David Mach will be talking about his artwork in this special evening lecture

Mach’s artistic style is based on flowing assemblages of mass-produced objects. Typically these include magazines, vicious teddy bears, newspapers, car tyres, match sticks and coat hangers. Many of his installations are temporary and constructed in public spaces.Recently Mach has produced some permanent public works such as Out of Order in Kingston upon Thames, the Brick Train (a depiction of an LNER Class A4 steam engine made from 185,000 bricks) and the Big Heids visible from the M8 between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Mach studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (now a school of University of Dundee), Dundee, Scotland from 1974, graduating in 1979, then at the Royal College of Art, London between 1979 – 82. Following several shows and public installations, Mach was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1988. In 2000 he joined the Royal Academy of Arts as Professor of Sculpture.

David will be selecting the winners of the Apache Awards for Aberdeen Artists’ Society this year.
