Artificial Environment – 2004
Crushed meths cans, furniture, bronze shield, canvas, timber, paints
In 2004 I curated the project Event, a series of installations and performances held in and around the main building in Glasgow of the artists studio organisation W.A.S.P.S. (Workshop and Artists Studio Provision, Scotland). The project explored the role that artists can play in highlighting major political events 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 using canvas, furniture, domestic objects, animal blood and text.
The lead artists included: Diane Torr, Lindsay John Moffat, Hilde Ash, Tris Vonna-Michell, Ally Wallace and Charlotte Bosanquet.
