NEW artwork showing a feeder cup being used on hunger strikers and injured soldiers has gone in display.

I Say Nothing, by Darvel-born Turner Prize nominee Christine Borland, includes two large-scale sculptures inspired by Glasgow Museums’ World War I collection.

Borland, pictured, worked with models to document two poses representing the ways in which the feeder cup was used, with one focused on healing injured servicemen during the conflict and the other on breaking the fasts of hunger striking suffragettes in the years running up to 1914.

The juxtaposition is said to highlight the contrast between institutional care and brutality.

Co-commissioned with commemorative arts project 14-18 Now, it is on display at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

Borland, who attended Glasgow School of Art, travelled to Belgium to research munitions as part of the project. She said she hopes visitors will reflect on the “complexities” of the history and legacy of war, as well as the “power” of objects.

Councillor David McDonald, chair of city museums body Glasgow Life, said: “I Say Nothing is a bold, thought-provoking contemporary artwork for Glasgow.

“It is a striking, powerful addition to the city’s art collection.

“The contradiction presented by the sculpture is certain to re-ignite interest in our World War I collection and stimulate debate and reflection on the nature and history of conflicts.”
