Waiting for a table

Waiting for a Table was a solo show of work by Kathleen Reilly presented by Very Friendly at the Voioid Archive, Glasgow in July 2016. The show comprised of an oversized dinner table upon which a range of tablewares had been used and abandoned. On entering the space the viewer stood beside the table in a manner that echoed the act of waiting for a table to be cleared in a busy restaurant - waiting to begin a meal.
