TANK Kate Temple

TANK is a year-long programme of exhibitions and events in our street front gallery space which have been organised as part of Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop’s Access & Engagement strategy.

Kate’s practice investigates the relationship and exchange between object and language systems – the object of language and the language of objects. She makes mixed-media installations that comprise a dialogue between object, image and word.
The Echo Project was initially developed through Magnetic North’s Creative Development Rough Mix residency in March 2013. Taking inspiration from the myth of Echo and Narcissus it is an ongoing body of work in various mediums.

For TANK, Kate will present an arrangement of painted stones to be viewed from street-level. A series of drawings and photographs also form part of this exhibition and can be viewed inside Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop during opening hours (Mon – Sat 11am – 5pm).

Kate is an artist based in Edinburgh. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art (MA Fine Art) in 2003 and Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design (MA Performance Design & Practice) in 2009.

Exhibitions include
Square2 at City Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand, in collaboration with artist Catherine Street (2013), glossa as part of Embassy’s Annuale in Edinburgh (2012) and REFLECTION at City Arts Centre in Edinburgh (2011).

Kate Temple is the first artist to exhibit as part of TANK and until Aug 2014 our programme will feature the work of artists Miranda Blennerhassett, Emma Ewan, Adam Knight, Mairi Lafferty, Katie McGown and Jennie Temple.
