  • Mathew Parkin

    Summer Residency 2019

    Mathew Parkin is an artist and home cook from Wakefield currently based in Scotland. They mainly work in moving image and text, working in and against institutions. They are particularly interested in autobiography, the social elements of exhibition making and how to support various bodies to inhabit art spaces. Often they work with friends, lovers, peers and family both in the production and subject of moving image work. Recurring themes are the body, accessibility, class intimacy, geography, caring, provisional, queerness, sex and kinship. They are trying to resist dominant forms of media and sit against professionalised forms of moving image production.

    In 2019 they will be in residence at Hospitalfield and CCA Glasgow. Recently they have produced exhibitions or screenings at or with LUX Scotland, V22, Grand Union, Embassy Gallery, IMT Gallery, the ICA,Two Queens, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, Eastside Projects, and Supercollider. They gained an MFA from Glasgow School of Art (2018) and were a participant of The Syllabus programme 2015/16.

  • Mike S Redmond and Faye Coral Johnson

    Summer Residency 2019

    Collaborative artists Mike S Redmond and Faye Coral Johnson (MSR FCJ) are the duo behind collections that dare to explore all manner of odd but enchanting circumstances. Through an experimental exchange, somewhere between the chaos and harmony of melding visual ideas, MSR FCJ consciously push traditional concepts of draftsmanship in favour of personal styles of figuration in order to present an intensely personal view of the world around them. Since 2006, through a multidisciplinary exploration of collaboration within experimental drawing, book art, painting, sculpture and installation, they have been filling walls and pages throughout the UK, Europe and the US.
