A collaboration between Scottish artists Kim Walker and Sarah Laing, funded by an A-N New Collaboration Bursary. This book compiles images and project progress as our New Collaboration Bursary Project develops. From the remote island of Islay we will be creating new works based on concepts of play and games that incorporate drawing, spoken word, walking and sound.
My work has naturally moved towards exploring pathos surrounding the concepts of seriousness, the mundane, nonsense, failure, success and humour. This has been achieved through a continued focus on the human condition and behaviours of gaming, playfulness, amusement and isolation. I create settings in which the mundane and the playful, ordinary gesture can suddenly invoke existential and poetic meanings. My engagement with the world around us comes from an observatory position - this gaze looks towards human interactions, the natural word and the spaces in between these two sites.
I have exhibited widely through artist-led spaces, larger galleries, video screening fesitvals and radio broadcasts. Examples include Southhill Park (Bracknell, UK), Mess Hall (Chicago IL), Heaven (Chicago,IL), Area 405 (Baltimore, MA), Little Berlin (Philadelphia, PA), Cooper Gallery, DJCAD (Dundee, UK), Limousine Bull Artists' Collective (Aberdeen, UK).
