Two famous Fifers face-to-face

20 January 2020

Two Fifers who have made their names in the world of art, music and broadcasting sit down next week to discuss their influences and how the kingdom shaped their lives and careers.

Film-maker and Skids lead singer Richard Jobson, from Dunfermline, and internationally renowned artist and sculptor David Mach, from Methil, will be reflecting on their roots at an ‘In Conversation’ event on Thursday, 30 January, at Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G).

The audience with the two outspoken men, who have been friends for many years, takes place just days before Mach’s large Odyssey installation at DCL&G is dismantled.

Jobson was the subject for one of Mach’s famous ‘coat-hanger’ sculptures.

While the hosted conversation will be free-flowing, David said on the agenda would be how Fife inspired them and how it affected their music, film and art.

Tickets for the event include a curated visit to David Mach: Odyssey before the sit-down conversation, which will be followed by a Q&A session.

David Mach and Richard Jobson In Conversation is on Thursday, 30 January –more details and book tickets at www.onfife.com.

A large-scale piece of art constructed from shipping containers, sea-worn wood, buoys and newspapers, the Odyssey exhibition closes on Sunday, 2 February.
