  • Hannah Leighton-Boyce

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2021

    Hannah Leighton-Boyce is a visual artist working in sculpture ranging from site specific and durational works, to drawing, sound and installation. Her work explores material, environmental and sensory relations and the politics of labour, through invisible processes such as the transmission of energy, the passing of time, accumulative and reductive forces.

    Recent exhibitions include Personal Structures, PAPER Pavilion, Palazzo Mora, Venice Biennale (2019); Each Toward the Other, Bury Sculpture Centre (2019); Major Conversations, Platform A Gallery (Middlesbrough, UK) touring to the Turnpike Gallery (Leigh, UK); Ruth Barker & Hannah Leighton-Boyce, Castlefield Gallery (Manchester, UK) touring to Glasgow Women’s Library (Glasgow, UK).

  • Holly Muir

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2021

    Holly Muir is an artist, writer and set designer. Her wooden installations use historical and fictional narratives to explore utopian tropes, the restorative capacities of work, and the relationships people have with non-humans.

    Holly graduated from the Ruskin School of Art in 2016, after which she spent a year writing fiction at Princeton University as a Daniel M. Sachs Scholar. She designs and builds stage sets with the experimental opera collective, Spectra Ensemble, and has previously worked for Scottish Opera, The Royal Shakespeare Company, The Royal Opera House and Pinewood Creative.

  • Jack Guariento

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2021

    Jack Guariento is a filmmaker and artist from Glasgow. He is interested in attempting to problematize taken-for-granted assumptions about what can be understood to be ‘real’ in this world, and investigating the blurred boundaries between supposedly mutually exclusive categories such as human and animal, self and other, and past, present and future. Somewhere in between narrative filmmaking and experimental video art, his films utilise a combination of old and new formats to effect a general feeling of anachronism and a confusion of temporalities which serves to visually support these themes.
