Announcing our next exhibtion @ Salt Gallery ‘The Pieces Are In ~ Flux’ opening 26th Oct
A collaborative group show featuring 16 of our Digital Residents from our various online residencies: What If residency // Film & Audio-visual digital programme // Digital residency, that we have hosted digitally since March 2020 after the Covid-19 restrictions were under effect.
This is a celebratory exhibition to showcase perseverance of our artists in residence who continued to develop, reflect and produce artwork under difficult circumstances. The exhibition is in response to witnessing persistent government failings in recognising how important the creative arts are. We want to highlight the variety of different creative expressions which not only help the artists but also provide others with content to engage with and enjoy during a socially isolating and chaotic period.
Studios to RENT!

Follow Hana's blog post on our website below!
During my two week online residency with Salt Space, I would like to combine the usual sights, specifically our bodies as we see them, and use my knowledge of anatomy to point out how much more there is ourselves and things around us. This will be done with the intention to look at everyday sights and activities in a different light and help think deeper about how mechanically we overlook things but also the complicated mechanism behind the actions and sights, themselves. To achieve this, I will use a cross-disciplinary approach of using 3D models as templates to create 2D art pieces made with mixed media. The depicted objects will be the structures of the human bodies applied to objects we see every day. I will take this opportunity to reflect my stay in Scotland, especially in Glasgow which has grown very close to my heart, and celebrate the sights associated with this special place.

Pleased to say artist Connor Ross @connor1t3 is the recipient of our collab digital residency with Print Clan! 🎈Follow Connor over the next few weeks as he begins to build a digital archive of interviews/research online alongside printing in the Print Clan studio.
Connor works in detailed drawings, embossment and printing techniques creating images relating to loss and memory. With this project he hopes to explore this premise on a larger scale and combine the methodical aspects in printmaking to question the natural repetition and degradation of memory. Keep up to date with the developments of Connors project on our social media and website and go follow @printclan 💘

Our current residents, architecture collective Civic Soup, are gearing up to host ‘A Reading Circle on Place & Decolonisation’, from this coming Monday, 14th September and each Monday from 7pm - 8.30pm for the next six weeks.
The reading circle will gather online to read aloud on practices of Decolonisation in relation to place, architecture and extant colonial legacies in Glasgow’s urban realm.
