Rachel Adams, Right Twice a Day




Right Twice a Day is a new sculptural work by the Glasgow-based artist, Rachel Adams. Its design is a culmination of features drawn from a traditional grandfather clock and The Maiden, a guillotine that was used between the 16th and 18th centuries as a means of execution in Edinburgh, Scotland. The work responds to the context of The School House by bringing together two historical references: the concept of the modern restaurant, which was born during the French revolution, and decimal time, which was enforced for a short period during the Terror, shortly afterwards.

Rachel Adams is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. In 2009 she graduated from the University of Edinburgh/Edinburgh College of Art and completed an MFA at the Ruskin School of Art in 2017. Recent solo exhibitions include Open Studio, Yoshimi Arts, Osaka, Japan (2015), Long Reach, domobaal, London and How to Live in a Flat, The Tetley, Leeds (2014);
