  • Duncan Marquiss

    Autumn Residency 2015

    Duncan Marquiss graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2005, and undertook the LUX Associate Artist Programme, London in 2009. He has been represented by several galleries including Peter Kilchmann, Zurich. He works predominantly with drawing and film but also writes essays and makes music, maintaining an interest in how methods applied to one medium can be transferred to another. He says that ideas often arise from spotting analogies between discrete topics, or playing on multiple meanings of a word. Recent projects compared innate foraging behaviour with searching in other contexts, such as shopping or browsing databases.
