Emma Hislop: Graduate Research Award

Following her selection at the New Contemporaries exhibition hosted by the Royal Scottish Academy in January 2020, Emma Hislop will receive a specially tailored package of developmental support including one year membership, £300 bursary to use on production materials and training time with our technicians, and 2 days mentoring by other members of ESW’s programming staff.

Hislop is a multi-disciplinary artist who focuses on skills in metalwork, scientific glassblowing and acts as an amateur meteorologist. Research surrounds deep ecology, phenomenology, alchemy, mysticism and current biomedical research. She graduated from Sculpture & Environmental Art at the Glasgow School of Art in 2019 and is part of the metalwork collective Slaghammers.
