  • Christina McBride

    Interdisciplinary Residency August 2021

    Christina McBride is an artist based in Glasgow. Her practice is located within lens-based enquiry with a committed focus on analogue practices/processes, particularly in relation to landscape. Recent concerns include alternative printing processes and exploring the use of natural materials and forms. Her pursuit is not only in a more embodied and sensory engagement with a context within a specific place and time, but also as a way of responding to wider environmental concerns and discourses.

  • 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.

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.
