The project is one of eight supported through Creative Scotland’s Vital Sparks funding scheme. The Vital Sparks programme, made possible through Scottish Government’s Innovation Fund, encourages experimentation, radical new work and innovative approaches to engaging with audiences.
Borland and Condon are collaborating with us and a team of medical education, and other professionals to develop a new joint project. Their new work, which is in its early stages of development, will explore the performative possibilities inherent in their shared interests; incorporating such diverse themes as surgery, dissection and weaving.
They've been travelling the country, visiting various production spaces, museums and archives both for inspiration and as part of their research. The artists also delivered a talk on their work at the Pier Arts Centre Orkney as part of Symbols in a Landscape, a flagship project of the Year of Scottish Islands that aims to present events to audiences in Orkney that explore links between art and archaeology. They delivered a lecture on Thursday 03 November to 3rd Year Glasgow School of Art Forum for Critical Enquiry students, in a lecture series organised by Dr Ross Birrell. more

Art Destroyed The World And It Won't Stop There
Coombes and Johnstone have spent the last two years collaborating on an iPhone app that would allow the smart phone to measure loneliness. It works by wiping the phone through your arse crevice to take measurements of bum-hole acidity. As personal hygiene declines following long periods of isolation the levels of acidity correlates perfectly to loneliness. The app was a total failure so they decided to make a film about the horror and futility of making art. queensparkrailwayclub

Lyric Picture House
113-115 Tong Road, Armley, LS12 1QJ
In the darkness of the derelict Lyric Picture House in the Armley area of Leeds, the cinema's old Kalee projector plays a new 35mm film. Specific to its place, Skaer's sculptural film work is the imagined subconscious of the projector itself. Through repeated screenings, the film slowly bears witness to its own presentation through scratches and marks that visibly scar and efface the surface of the image. At the end of the project the cinema will once again be dormant. e-flux

Hilary Lloyd's flickering screens, Karla Black's crumbling craftwork and Martin Boyce's wonky rubbish bin blend sculpture, video art and installation in a new and unsettling way –but it's the quiet poetry of George Shaw's don't-care England that rises above it all. Guardian art critic Adrian Searle passes his verdict on the Turner prize 2011Guardian
This is a melancholy show, from Martin Boyce’s windswept library, in which a few leaves from his 2009 exhibition for the Scottish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale appear to have blown in with the draught, to George Shaw’s paintings of boarded-up shops. Film-maker Hilary Lloyd looks at the moon and Karla Black, who represented Scotland in Venice in 2011, has presented a beautiful room of painterly sculptures, which seem elegantly faded and purposefully tentative, as well as characteristically exuberant.

The Red Shed art installation at BBC Scotland
The Red Shed is a regular garden shed installed in the middle of BBC Scotland's offices at Pacific Quay. Placed there by the interior designers Graven Images the red shed is designed to be an island amongst the black and grey rows of desks and chairs.
In a collaboration between BBC Scotland and Glasgow School of Art, six artists have been invited to use it as a space for art for one week each. This feature documents the first three installations. The videos have been produced and directed by staff members in the BBC.
The gallery and project space offers a professional platform and experimental space for artists to develop their ideas, explore new directions and host a range of artist talks and events.
They also have an open submission policy. If you have an idea for an exhibition, project or collaboration please email theduchygallery[at]gmail.com with any initial ideas or formal proposals you may have. They are particularly looking for recent graduates to be incorporated in 2 person and group shows later this summer.
