‘Dependent Arising’ was commissioned by Cento in March 2022. Its title derives from the Buddhist concept of interdependence. The exhibition forms part of No War For Heavy Metal, a wider body of work developed by Raydale Dower in response to the presence of nuclear weapons in Scotland at the RNAD Coulport base on Loch Long in Argyll. The exhibition is accompanied by an artist's book containing a new image–text work, Light and light (colours in your mind), which intersperses stills from an experimental 16mm film, developed during the artist’s residency at Cove Park, with writing by Calum Sutherland.
