Thu 3 November — Fri 4 November 2022

Ciggie Stories is the performative launch of a new collection of autobiographical writings by multi-disciplinary artist Emily Furneaux. A tribute to her messy love affair with the cigarette - which came to its final closure this year (fingers crossed).
Weaving together twenty tales about five significant men in her life, Furneaux will share fragments from her early adulthood living above a pub with her alcoholic father, the escapism she found sharing Gauloises with her late Step Father, her first proper love who she met living in Kansas City, an unimaginable crush and a traumatic break-up.
After the performance, Furneaux will be serving celebratory, cigarette themed refreshments.
Furneaux is a Glasgow based artist working in writing, performance, collage, culinary experience and installation. In 2020 she set-up Above & Alone - a life-long dining project: bringing strangers together to share food in her home. Despite her relationship with smoking, Furneaux is an ultra marathon runner; she is currently working on Artists vs Athletes - a collaborative research project investigating creative approaches to sport practices.
Ciggie Stories is supported by Hope Scott Trust & Glasgow Life’s Visual Art Craft Maker Award.
