Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is delighted to present an exhibition, ‘New Work’ of Sculpture, Film and Performance, produced by four artists on this year’s Micro Residency Programme: Rachel Adams, Michelle Hannah, Chris Walker and Chloe Windsor.
Opening on Friday 9th May 2014, 6-8pm and then open Monday 12th– Saturday 24th May 10am-5pm daily (Not Sunday) at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop, 21 Hawthornvale, Edinburgh, EH4 6JT.
Here is some information on the artists involved in ‘New Work’ and images of some works produced during their residency at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop.
Rachel Adams’s work explores the relationship between science fiction, sculptural forms and decorative craft techniques, questioning the historical and cultural value of materials. Her work combines craft techniques, including macramé with contemporary & commercial techniques such as laser cutting and vinyl printing.
Michelle Hannah is a Glasgow based artist. “There is a strong sense of romanticism in my work, mainly in the roles which sound, performance and video is used as an outlet, seeking to understand society’s obsession with technology, identity, legacy and its perpetual fame while addressing our innate longing for resolving existential questions of individuality, lack of faith and purposeful meaning.”
Edinburgh based artist, Chris Walker’s work is informed by contemporary news reporting and censorship; the every-day nature of the presentation of violence in the media; consumerism and materialistic imperatives and contemporary philosophical ideas relating to ethics.
“My current art practice consists mainly of sculpture and light installation, supported by drawing, collage and creative writing. Visually, I am inspired by the beauty of ruins, the solemn power of sculpture fragments, and the cryptic force of ancient relics. Through these interests I often explore the dialectic between antiquity/ancient civilizations and modern technologies within my work.”
