Description

'A Feminist Chorus for Glasgow School of Art' was a sound work installed in the 'Hen Run' of Glasgow School of Art's Rennie Mackintosh building for the Glasgow International Festival of 2014, between 4th - 21st April 2014. It was part of the wider collaborative work A Feminist Chorus. The Hen Run was a corridor running along the top floor of the building close by where the embroidery studios would have been during the first century of the art school, and account for the name's association with female students of the past, through the use of the vernacular term 'hen'. Through research in the Glasgow School of Art Archives, Reynolds created a score from the names, addresses and occupations of young women enrolled at the art school in the first years of it's residency in the Mackintosh building, between 1900 -1905. She invited students enrolled at GSA in 2014 to speak the names of their long ago predecessors, studying at the school during the years pre-dating the suffrage vote.
