Blair Wallace (he/him)
Blair Wallace (b.1999) is an artist currently living and working in Glasgow, Scotland. Working between video, performance, installation and photography, Wallace’s work is guided by phenomenological modes of interpretation which are used as aids to examine objects and experiences which deal with ideas around documentation of self, time and labour. Situated in a contemporary context, his work brings into question the changing nature of documentation and how modes of documentation have changed over time. Touching on themes of voyeurism and surveillance, his work reflects on how we create, share and consume documents of existence through modern technology, commenting on the affects these new modes have in altering human behaviour.
Some of this work will be shown physically at Part Two of the Alternative Degree Show Festival across Glasgow in July 2021.
