Join us on Wednesday 8 December 6.00 – 7.30 to hear our current residents Becky Brewis, Ben Caro, Kat Cutler-Mackenzie, Joanne Matthews and Maria Wrang-Rasmussen discuss their work.
Becky Brewis is an artist from London now based in Dundee. Her drawings, textiles and installations explore how the past permeates the present, psychologically and materially. Ben Caro and Kat Cutler-MacKenzie share a collaborative artistic practice that draws upon techniques from experimental archaeology — in which found objects are re-cast or re-performed to unlock tacit histories, and pedagogic methods of communication. Joanne Matthews career in the arts spans 11 years. Working collaboratively across performance, audio, video, installation, photography and drawing, she conducts embodied fieldwork, rooted in place, creating gestural works of art. Maria Wrang-Rasmussen is a Danish interdisciplinary artist based in Edinburgh. Dipping into memory, unreliable narrators, togetherness and self-mythologisation, she constructs her work with a playful non-linear approach to language, narrative and form.
These five artist are all recipients of the ESW/ECA Graduate Residency Award which has been generously supported by Edinburgh College of Art.
