  • Sophie Cundale

    Summer Residency 2018

    Sophie Cundale (b.1987) works with film and performance. Her work involves collaborative processes of both scripted and improvised acting and depends on the chemistry of constructed situations. Cundale appears as a performer in her own work to varying capacities, from a voice directing action to an exposed and central protagonist. Bodies under the influence of love, loss and heartbreak are the subject of the work. Deploying personal experience, the work considers the systems that control and govern our desire and grief.

    Marie Jacotey is a London-based artist who graduated with an MA in Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London in 2013 after completing a DNSAD in 2011 from École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, Paris. Jacotey’s work draws inspiration from the gathering of people together, the expression of emotions in their many and varied interactions and the contexts and details in which these engagements take place – architecture, landscape, or place; picking out wallpaper, furniture, clothes, and zooming in further to detail pattern, patina, texture… Her works – though insistently manual in their making (paintings on plaster and dust sheets, pencil drawings, sewing and fabric) – make use of perspectives that reference the world of cinema and slow-mo, the photographer’s point and shoot, identifying an artist who has come of age in the smartphone world with its prevalent verbs – zoom, scroll, tap, drag, swipe etc. Recent solo exhibitions include those at Hannah Barry Gallery, London (October 2017 as well as 2015 and 2014), McQueen Project Space, London (2016), Francis Carrette Galerie, Brussels (2016), Robert Blumenthal Gallery, Hamptons, NY (2015), Heike Moras Art, London (2015), and Galerie du CROUS, Paris (2013).

  • Alice Wadkin

    Graduate Residency 2018

    Alice Wadkin’s practice is primarily led by research into a specific site or community. She considers the face-to-face encounter to be the most distinguishable form of inter-human communication, and her research frequently involves holding discussion workshops or action groups. The work Wadkin makes in response to these conversations often takes the form of a written piece or social installation, such as a theatrical set or staged performance. At present her research is focusing on Pedagogical Support Structures, in particular rethinking transitions for students moving from Higher Education into the world of work and sustaining their own artistic practice. She graduated from BA Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College or Art & Design, Dundee in 2017.



  • Catriona Beckett

    Graduate Residency 2018

    Catriona Beckett works in sound, video, animation, sculpture and painting, fusing these mediums to create installations, which suggest visions of new landscapes and unseen architectural forms. The outcome is not a fixed presentation, but rather is a space which can be co-authored by the viewer. Therefore, the pieces exist by re-generating imaginatively within the space. This participatory element of her work is carried over to other aspects of her practice. As well as independent works, Beckett collaborates with other artists on sound projects, performance projects and curating exhibitions. She graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee with a BA Art & Philosophy in 2018.

  • Flora deBechi

    Graduate Residency 2018

    Flora deBechi’s work is concerned with the potential of raw materials from microcosm to macrocosm in differing states of flux. She predominantly works using light and carbon, spanning across sculpture, video, sound, and installation. She is interested in the process of understanding and observing elemental change; from our relationship with the intangible to experiences in our everyday lives. Light and carbon are regarded for their purifying qualities, but paradoxically provide a black deposit, which we perceive as impure. It is this ‘black deposit’ which has been the inspiration for recent pieces drawing on concepts of transference and energy production and use. She graduated from Master of Letters in Fine Art Practice-Sculpture Glasgow School of Art in 2018. 


  • Flora Hunt

    Graduate Residency 2018

    Flora Hunt is a recent graduate of the Sculpture and Environmental Art course at the Glasgow School of Art.

She creates interactive sculptural props and sets to stage imagined rituals and folkloric narratives exploring the squishy, slippery, heavy, poetic, ecstatic experiences of living in a body. She was recently shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018, and is currently working on a new commission for Embassy Gallery in Edinburgh, opening in July 2018. She is based in Glasgow.

She aims to incorporate expressive elements, creating the illusion that things appear just as she, the artist, sees them.

Aoyagi is also a Manga writer.
