Eilidh Reilly

As a working-class woman, my drive to make work stems from the desire to explore the systems of inequality that are so deeply ingrained within our culture they are simply accepted as inevitable facts of a society. Through my work, I hope to confront and interrogate these societal structures; I hope to pull them apart and expose their ragged seams.

My work is often disciplinary: creative writing, performance to camera, installation, illustration and the casting process are methods that my practice is grounded by. It is through these methods of making that I find a language that enables me to take a playful approach while exploring subject matters that are, by nature, incredibly destructive.

I am a Scottish artist based in Glasgow. I completed my BA honours in Sculpture and Environmental Art at Glasgow School of Art in 2020 and am currently undertaking their MLitt programme in Fine Art.
