In the months leading up to their joint exhibition at arebyte LASER, Christopher MacInnes and Laura Yuile have been collaborating remotely on ideas, concepts and work. The pairing of the two artists seeks to form cross-overs of practice, with overarching themes of commodity, bureaucracy, privacy and the inner workings of technology, as well as ideas of what it means to form a “collaborative process”.
Laura Yuile is an artist based in London. Recent exhibitions include Homesick, T-Space, Milan; A Place For You To Dream, Republic, London; Ludicrously Ideal and Beautifully Placed, Generator, Dundee; SculpturParcours, The Wiener Art Foundation at Parallel, Vienna; and World Interiors, Savoy Centre for Glasgow International, Glasgow. She has undertaken residencies with Space / The White Building, London and Temporary Art Platform, Beirut. In 2015 she was an Associate Artist at Open School East and will soon graduate from the MFA programme at Goldsmiths. Forthcoming projects include a
residency in Beijing as a recipient of the Red Mansion Award, and the group exhibition, Habits of Care, curated by Helena Reckitt at Blackwood Gallery, Toronto.
Christopher MacInnes is an artist based in Glasgow. Recent exhibitions include ILLOGICAL CORE, Radio Borealis, Bergen; On The Ground, Perth Museum and Art Gallery, Perth; I Know Amy: Loom Loom Loom and Gwenan International, Queen’s Park bowling Club, Glasgow; and Future Artifact, Dose Projects, New York.
He has been awarded residencies, awards and funding with Hope Scott Trust and Creative Scotland, has been resident artist at Cockenzie House, Port Seton as part of Art Rooms 2014, and curated SIMSTIM as part of Open House Festival, Glasgow. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2012.
