Artificial Environment 4 - 2004

Furniture, paints, various fluids, canvas, steel, timber, bronze shield

In 2004 I curated a project called Event: a series of installations and performances held in and around the main WASPS artists studio building in Glasgow. The project explored the role that artists can play in highlighting major political events or traumas occurring throughout the world. What is the responsibility of the individual to comment on, analyse or draw attention to such events?

The exhibition took form through dialogues between seven visual artists making installations, and nine new works by performance artists. I made a series of interventions installed throughout the building, using canvas, furniture, domestic objects, animal blood and text.

Lead artists included: Diane Torr, Lindsay John Moffat, Hilde Ash, Tris Vonna-Michell, Ally Wallace and Charlotte Bosanquet.
