"FTFY" installation in New City Space, Glasgow

This was a link to a book that I scanned which does not have an e-book version yet. It is a kind of passive public distribution that is related to the theme of the book and brings up outdated policies in copyright law. The work exists as a loophole, but it is also using the fontface 'offline' to suggest that there is an irony to the concept of accessibility in a digital age. FTFY is shorthand for "Fixed That For You".

Materials: Spraypaint installation on window, font "Offline" and a scanned version of "What We Want is Free" put illegally online.

Accompanying Text from the exhibition

"Indirectly Yours"
An intervention by John Nicol of Cedric Tai's exhibition
Intermedia Gallery, 6-26 July, 2013

This show is a microcosm of issues focusing on what is gained and lost when the framing of artwork becomes destabilised; a subversion of the authors' original intention as an exorcism of artistic preciousness.

What happens to everything in your studio when you're done making the real work? What does it mean to create work in the absence of others? These are some of the questions that come to mind as the new UK visa laws begins to affect the location of Glasgow-based artists.

This is a solo show featuring the work of Cedric Tai, but this is also a solo show featuring the work of John Nicol.

We hope you enjoy the exhibition, thank you for visiting.
