Sculpture & Environmental Art

Each year staff in Sculpture & Environmental Art (SEA) welcome into the Department a new cohort of students keen to learn the material language of our two programmes: that is, sculpture itself; and approaches to spatial practice relevant to working in social contexts. When material sculpture meets with the world of ideas, the possible environments, contexts and audiences for the work become dynamic elements within contemporary spatial practice. As well as developing independent projects in settings where art doesn’t normally exist, this year students completing their Honours degree in SEA have also had the chance to make work with a range of external partners to whom we are really grateful: Pollok House, Projectability and Platform in Glasgow; Pig Rock Bothy project at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, in Edinburgh; the Woodlands Trust at Lang Craigs; and with two new partners – The Hidden Gardens at Tramway and Art in Hospitals. These opportunities have given the students invaluable experiences, professional support and, most significantly, helped shape their practice. We are really grateful to all these organizations for supporting the students and the Department in this way. 

As students graduate from the Department we feel privileged to have worked so closely with such creative, intelligent and articulate individuals, and to have witnessed them formulate such coherent bodies of work and research. Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year is no exception. The Graduate Showcase goes some way to representing this wealth of thinking and making, and although it could never make up for the loss of the physical degree show, it offers an opportunity for the world to get a feel for the depth and diversity of works undertaken by this group of graduating students. The dialogues that we have had with the students through their work – and they with each other – will hopefully remain a trace long after they have graduated. They each take with them, wherever they go, their creative skills, critical ability and DIY attitude. This attitude is part of the ethos of SEA, and it is embedded in the art community in Glasgow too. These qualities mean they have what it takes to forge a creative career, saying what is important to them, in the way that they want, to an audience that matters. The whole SEA staff team is immensely proud of our graduates and wish them every success.

Making Things Left Unfinished

These are selected images documenting my processes of making, prior to the covid-19 pandemic. I was working towards an installation for the final degree show. Looking back at these photographs makes me wonder when I will have access to art tools and resources again. Access to resources such as welding and casting workshops are such a privilege. I truly hope to revisit these works again.

Being Strong For You / Closeted

Being Strong For You/Closeted was exhibited at the “Like A Biennale” exhibition at Civic House, organised by Year 4 SEA students in January 2020. It is a sculptural installation informed by my experiences of needing and giving support to those we do not find solidarity in. This is explored through balancing metal structures and objects together, reflecting on the insecurity of imbalanced relationships. This particular work was an important point for me, as I began to explore ways of using installation to reflect on the labour of non-binary people. Most of us find ourselves attempting to survive under cis-normative conditions, for the comfort of cis people. I use sculpture as a tool to pick out these nuances and clarify what compromises are made.

Encountering material and object, reflecting on support systems

I did a day residency at Pig Rock Bothy, located on the grounds of Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, in November 2019. In this residency, I wanted to explore how objects support objects — looking at how objects rely on one another / make use of one another. This was when I realised that I am able to use sculpture as way to explore the nature of (queer) friendships ... 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘺 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘩𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦, 𝘥𝘦𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘥𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘷𝘶𝘭𝘯𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘣𝘭𝘦, 𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘨𝘨𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘰𝘳 𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘺𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘢𝘵 𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘦. I bended some metal structures. They were carefully placed around the site of Pig Rock Bothy, slotted into cracks and holes. I blew balloons within the metal structures. In each iteration, the objects suggests different types of relationships. I am interested in the way they trust and care for one another, the way they hold onto each other. Some are heavily reliant whilst others could exist independently. Some suffocate one another. structures need structures need structures need structures. can objects be fully autonomous?

Early sketch for Potential Degree Show Installation

This image depicts one of the early sketches of the work I wanted to build for the degree show. It shows the metal structures I wanted to construct, which plays a vital role in supporting and balancing other welded and casted objects. I planned to work towards a large-scale sculptural installation for the degree show. The two projects I worked on earlier in fourth year are smaller-scale versions, and they give an insight to what my work could’ve looked like.

Singing Glasses

work : Some experiences that we witness in day to to day life don’t stop once we have walked past them; they have an after-life. Our brains instinctively replay and ponder them. I walked past the glass player haunted with disbelief, I couldn’t believe that the man rubbing his fingers around rims of glasses filled with water could create a song so angelic that it lit up his presence. I was wracking my brain re imagining the scene searching for a hidden speaker or alternative source of sound. Maybe this is due to me never being successful at making a sound round the rim of a glass. As a kid I told myself it was a well known magic trick I’ve just not been let in on, like whistling with a split blade of grass. 1 min long

Three Works, 2020

Three artists discuss projects they are undergoing.

Pollok House Install, 2020

This video was made to be part of a group exhibition at Pollok House, Glasgow. The video pans around each room whilst a narrator explains the process of installing all the paintings in the National Trust Property. For this video the paintings were each digitally edited out to make it appear as though I had shot this video prior to install; this, along with the narration was aimed at creating the illusion that whoever made the video had actually installed all the paintings themselves. The video was displayed on a monitor that was mounted on a pre-existing TV stand in the foyer.

Duplo Gardens 2019

Throughout 2018 / 19, I volunteered with Glasgow's Project Ability facilitating a pinhole photography project. Working in collaboration with multi-disciplinary artists Simon McAuley & Richard Anderson, we explored the mediums infinite possibilities, approaching the science, materials and aesthetic in different ways. Embracing a dreamy and over saturated style, Duplo Gardens explores utopian suburbia through a reduced lens.

Sing it on a Friday

"Sing it on a Friday" is an auditory portrait of a group of people who come together each week to sing and be together. The sound installation aims to reflect back our experience of being part of it, an artefact of the ephemeral moments of the much-treasured rehearsal space. For this collaborative piece, Emma Brown and Lisa Fabian joined the Platform Singers community choir for several months. By closely working with the group as both participants and observers, this process attempted to prioritise and give value to the creativity and autonomy of the group. The soundscape consists of an assembly of fragments that are played in and out of synchronicity, on a six-channel sound installation. Being part of this warm group for an extended time allowed us to pick out the emotional experiences that moved and resonated with us most - the community, humour, harmony and relationships within the group. The installation mimics the welcoming space that is created by this gathering of voices in the warm rehearsal circle and aims to share it with the wider community. This collaboration was created with the materials of the choir, the valuable but ephemeral voices and relationships, which we valued and made present for a small and precious time.

Here I am again, crouched, head down, fingers pushing out white putty into the tarmac, covering dulled greys of old chewing gum splotches with bright white porcelain that looks freshly chewed. People pass by, if they see me they verve round the dots that litter the hill. I’ve never known what it means, tracing these accidental decorations to the street. It feels the most natural place to be, kneeling in determination and red velvet, with strangers asking me what I’m doing. But that book was right. The street is the every day. The patch of land between the home and work and all those other places. I wonder if other people look down while walking, like I do. Perhaps I won’t be able to collect the imprints of the people like me, who cautiously place their feet upon the earth, avoiding any mess on hard concrete soles. I only capture traces of the people who haven’t noticed. The watchful go by unrecorded, too vigilant to leave a mark. I map out all these human-made marks on the street, visible and available to answer questions, I go back and remove the porcelain imprinted with unknown shoes and wheels, fire it all together in a big kiln until its hard and shiny and beautiful and chirrups when you hit it with a high fine singing note and then…

Subway Piece. Seven Stops

Information notice displayed to the public: “There is a person in this carriage singing. We are making a film together. It’s about how you can sing at the top of your voice when the train is screeching loud and rumbly and nobody can hear you, not even the person sitting next to you. The video will be projected, sound loud and quiet, faces blurred, very small and very bright.”

The Lady in the Tutti Fruity Hat!

After working as a life model I started this project thinking about the politics of being drawn/ represented. In a series of life modeling performances I use a large prop fruit hat (a huge bobble hat, made from wool, in the style of a Carmen Miranda fruit hat; with grapes, pears, apples, oranges, kiwis, lemons, peaches, a honeydew melon and a watermelon) and a series of poses to explore how a female model presents herself, and how she is seen.

Contemplations [with a drink]

Contemplation [with a drink] considers the perplexity that ensues from having a multi-ethnic and multi-nationalistic background. The figures are references to famous paintings created by male artists from the U.S.A., South Korea and Japan: Drowning Girl: Roy Lichtenstein, Portrait of a Beauty: Sin Yunbok and A Woman Applying Make-up: Goyo Hashiguchi. The implementation of UV ink reveals the rumination of the woman portrayed, in turn criticizing the voyeuristic nature in which females have been traditionally depicted. Each painting has a bottle of alcohol and clothing that is native to the country it represents. Additionally, the frames have been engraved with the national flower from each country: U.S.A: rose, Korea: hibiscus syriacus, Japan: cherry blossom.

Inosculation

Located in the Hidden Gardens in the Tramway. A place of rest. Inosculation in relation to the human body through movement, and embodied material handling . Sitting on this bench will allow you to become a part of the nature we inhabit. An exploration of our relationship and connection to natural growth crafted using recycled, sustainably sourced Elm Wood.

Anastomosis

Exhibited in Civic House, Glasgow An image from a movement workshop I led working with The Hidden Gardens Mens group. A space for free thought, creativity and putting accessibility for all at the forefront of the activities. I wanted  to work with this group to create a homage to its overwhelming sense of community amongst a group of people that together create a place of belonging. My workshop explored the importance of such shared spaces, conversation and mindfulness. Working with this group I was able to explore closeness, tension, the power of human interaction and escapism through movement. To explore this the men were asked to use their hands and bodies to mimic the inosculation seen in the gardens, leading to conversations based on touch, confidence and exchange of thoughts from the experience.  During this current time living through a global pandemic with restrictions and bans of this sort of interaction this work creates a platform for appreciating importance for connecting with others through physical contact as well as shared inhabitation.This restriction has created a platform to further explore how my work, as well as how we view such important exchanges of touch, conversation and sharing will change as we go forward unknowingly into the future.

Mapping a space

Exhibited in Civic House, Glasgow. This work acts as a model of the time spent with the Mens Group at The Hidden Gardens. The use of shadow explores the idea of story telling to create a sense of togetherness, contrasting with the solid concrete ground the figures stand on. This work acts as research into the different elements revealed through my shared time with the group.

Body Landscape

Performed in The Barnes Building, Garage Exhibition Space, Glasgow. Images from a group performative workshop I led. In this workshop participants use their bodies to mimic and narrate experienced landscapes through collaborative decisions on movements, discussions and formations of quick tableaux. This allowing for reflection on how we relate to our surroundings and our placement of body between one another.

Rhythms

Performed in Milport, Scotland. A further exploration of using the body to narrate a space, this project explores further the body in relation to natural elements through recreating natural forms specific to this site.

Evanescent Inhabitation

Exhibited in Southbank, Melbourne, Australia. This work is an exploration of my time living away from Glasgow in Melbourne. Living in a new place I wanted to explore how I inhabit unknown spaces through habitual behaviour when trying to navigate a new way of life. I created sculptural configurations as a way of articulating my surroundings. These were derived from natural forms and spaces I found myself drawn to as surroundings became familiar and a sense of placement was revealed.

Nest Web

Exhibited in Southbank Victoria, Melbourne, Australia. This work explores structures and mechanisms of support, based on process of making. This was created through welding and a process of hand weaving found wire. This piece explores natural occurring support structures found in nature as well as embodied material handling to mimic processes seen in nesting and creation of habitats. The tension and contrast of one shell form holding the other in suspense exhibits this support between two forms relying on each other.

Spaces Between

Exhibited at The Studio Pavilion, House for an Art Lover, Glasgow. In this project I wanted to explore how I could reveal hidden forms found in spaces I pass through as a way of giving these spaces narrative. These sculptural forms come from lines pulled out from the images seen hung in the space of branches in the trees. I created sculptural forms to expose them in their own right through scale and material.

Sex Sculpture Work for Plinths

I believe all sculptures have no value but the ideas behind them are what gives the inanimate object value. This is an attempt to explore the vast wealth inequality in the “art world”. What makes works of art priceless and some worthless? Who decides that? Why do we use plinths / why did the “art world” decide to eradicate plinths? Can I bring plinths back? I make work about the everyday small things which mean a lot to me. Recently been focusing on my sexuality and exploring my body.

A Sculpture That Can Wipe Its Own Arse

January 2020 I was interested in the fact this sculpture could be easily changed into a joke piece. First of all the toilet paper with no text just is a joke. This object I’ve created has no meaning to me it’s just an outlet for memories or trauma which I can work through. I could break it and not care much about it. On the other hand for presentation at GSA it is a well refined priceless work with depth and meaning. It is also a comment on the absurdities of being an artist. When you’re a famous artist you can basically get away with anything and call it art if you time it right. When do I get to have that privilege? Will I ever become a famous artist with work like this? Probably not. The toilet paper for exhibitions has a traumatic story of something I went through on it, it is anonymous. It is just a way for me to work through a situation which damaged me so I do not have to go through it again in the same way. Critical thinking and other perspectives are so important to my mental well-being. Also the latex is like a condom and as latex changes colour over time, this work is in a constant state of flux and change.

The Artists Hand (Job)

This work was looking at the ‘wankieness’ of wanting to become an artist and the phrase “the artists hand” which is used to describe when you know the artist has made something themselves. This in its self is elitist. Some people do not have the resources or knowledge to make all their work themselves. In reality an artist is a production team. Who did I buy the rubber from for this cast? GSA Casting Department... Have they helped make my art now? Also this work could have many meanings, as I like to do and have a joke with Art. I’ve been told I give good hand jobs so here is my artists’ hand (job).

Stow Collage Sculptures

Probably the only documentation I have of myself in the studio in 4th year. I am comparing myself to my sculpture; a flaming hot piece of honking shite which is just making it through life without being fully scrutinized. Meaning less yet totally meaning full. Toilet paper and Artists, what’s the difference?

TRACKIE WOS 'ERE

I am currently thinking about smoking and the effects on the teeth and the body. The ash tray is part of this it holds the cigarette of choice in question. This is a contemporary cig holder or is it just something naughty you would find and bring it home for a laugh? Either way it’s funny. Inspired by Trackie McLeod and his obsession with Mr Blobby.

Warburtons Thick Sliced White

Sewing things up used to be essential but now it is a hobby. Baking bread used to essential but now it is a hobby. The more processes that are done for us, the less there is to do with our hands and so the more appreciated the act of spending time with an object becomes. The intrinsic value and care in mending can easily get lost in an efficiency driven world, where a loaf of bread can so quickly be sliced yet so slowly be sewn back together again.

Free Fabrication

The markings on this pair of work jeans were collected over a three month period spent working on other art students projects. A poster was used to advertise this service, and lots of students from across the art school got in touch. Some of the jobs were fabricating additional display objects, whilst other people requested work on the artworks themselves. However the majority of the jobs were actually accompanying keen yet inexperienced makers who were intimidated by the workshop environment. It was surprising how little structures were in place within the art school to encourage hands on practice, but then again unsurprising considering a laptop takes up less space than a sculpture. The jeans became a uniform, exploring the relationship between art and labour. As the condition of the jeans deteriorated, the practical skillset of those involved strengthened.

The Hot Water Bottle Machine

This machine was made for a group outdoor exhibition at Lang Craigs in collaboration with The National Trust. The show occurred in early march on a Scottish hill and so the purpose of the machine was to provide a source of warmth for the visitors as they viewed the other work around the site. The machine and its operator filled, capped, and distributed the hot water bottles in an elaborate and absurd way. The domestic covers of the hot water bottles that were lovingly crocheted by volunteers contrasted with the industrial steel mechanics of the machine that was then taken in by the exposed landscape which rusted the frame.

Price: £10 per 250ml Hot water Bottle

Art on the Lease

This exhibition at the New Glasgow Society brought together forty-three artworks from rental properties around Glasgow. Lots of these artworks are usually kept in cupboards, where they stay out of sight but within the terms of the tenancy agreement. Not all of these artworks are unloved by their tenants, and some are proudly displayed around the home, but none of the work on display had been chosen. In the style of the “Salon des Refusés”, this exhibition showcased a category of art that is typically disdained by galleries but that many people have to live with. “Art on the Lease” compares the often decorative function of art in the home, to the often critical function of art in the gallery. Most of these artworks hold a unique value to their temporary owners, who tend to care for them out of a desire for their deposit as opposed to a genuine appreciation. The collection also explores wider issues around the lack of agency for tenants during the UK housing crisis.

Pools

Pools exhibited in Civic House, Glasgow, explores the nature of my relationship to the sea by considering instinctual acts of collecting and archiving shells found on the shoreline. Addressing the drive behind these acts, I question the variations in visual and tactile experiences of the landscape that result in domestic curation of collected terrestrial form.

Ebb and Flow

Materials - Earthenware Ceramics
In harmony with Woodlands Trust, the work resided in the pond and river running through Lang Craigs, Dumbarton. I became interested in discarded/washed up buoys and fenders - exploring form and function through slip-casting. At this time I was also researching the dredging of clay - engaging in the visceral of tactile material handling, whilst reflecting upon the mediums relationship to water. As well as addressing notions of beaconing due to an enhancement of object histories, the work speculates upon a potential relationship between the buoyant ceramic sculptures and the water, river-bed and pond floor.

Embodied Making

A curation of significant family kitchenware alongside sculpture, print and publication. This body of work, exhibited at Pig Rock Bothy, National Galleries of Scotland - Edinburgh, addresses the evocation of memory through environmental encounter and domestic making. In extension, this grouping of significant material further speculates upon notions of embodying knowledge of traditional making in the hands.

Vessel

For Vessel, I implemented an alternative mode of environmental encounter - driven by a desire to frame my own observation and placement within Ardrossan’s shoreline. The large mussel structure was made in likeness to the body - the torso - resulting in this placement and displacement of form to reflect and enhance a personal relationship to the landscape.

Projection Mapping

A research project assessing potential relationships between sites of environmental intervention. This series explores themes of locality as well as elements such as time, weather and space - confronting material and place through projection mapping. The work provides a platform for alternative modes of experiencing the natural environment, in a gallery setting, through distortion of imagery upon the sculptural form of an enlarged shell containing water.

Digging

A site specific project exploring physical and imagined landscapes. Taking place upon the shoreline of the town I grew up in, the work explores notions of attaining a form of self-orientation using material upheaval as a mode of creating visual reference points upon the land. The process was documented and made in to a publication, that was later distributed in a crafted wooden box partially buried in the site of excavation.

Leading up to Degree Show I had been addressing closely the relationship between the body and the landscape - reflecting upon previous environmental interventions or sculptural outlets as being closer to the body than perhaps understood at the time. I have begun to work with parian clay - engaging with the material similarities between this particular clay, and bone - and shell.

Potato trophies are to send out the message to offenders who categorise or discriminate by race or nationality. The trophy, especially the plaque, can be personalised and customised. The service welcomes all genders for submission… offenders are everywhere. Orders can be submitted anonymously online.

The examples for perusal are made by the creator, Soorin Shin who identifies as an Asian female.

Asian girls in your fantasy who never existed.

A series of digital collages composed of found images online, advertising Asian girls for dating or marriage. These websites often categorise women by their nationalities so customers can choose girls in their favour. The fantasy of Asian girls is realised in the Internet space dominated by racial fetishisation, in which they are objectified and exoticised. The misogynistic ideology and racial stereotypes are criticised by showing the mass(or mess) of figures in this fantasy, and modified and distorted faces and bodies become the ultimate representation of the Asian girls at the customer’s request, who have never existed and never will.
