  • Holly O’Brien

    Interdisciplinary Residency October 2021

    Holly O’Brien (b.1996) is a writer and curator based in Glasgow. With a background in literature, her practice focuses on alternative modes of storytelling, artists’ writing practice, the potential of language, and fiction as a vehicle for uncovering buried histories and archives. Within this, she explores how language, nonnormative writing, and experimental forms can enrich an artist’s practice and an audience’s experience of visual work.

    Graduating with an MLitt in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) from Glasgow School of Art in September 2021, her independent curatorial projects include a thing that remembers itself, To a Passer-by and Due Chiacchiere. She has also worked as a freelance curator for Tramway TV and The Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery.

  • Jamie George

    Interdisciplinary Residency October 2021

Jamie studied at Goldsmiths and The Slade. In 2013, he completed a PhD at Cambridge School of Art, researching how sculptures utilise a ‘forgetful memory’ –– a reflexive process of positing, junking and reimagining relationships to cultural information. Recent projects, residencies, and awards include a Gasworks International Fellowship, a Central Saint Martins Cocheme Fellowship and a Jerwood Arts bursary. His writing has been published by Moxy Magazine and commissioned by Goldsmiths CCA. Jamie is also a founding editor of dreck.co.uk.
