A Remix of Damage includes, ‘In the Depths of Our Ocean’ by Abbey Corbin exploring the effect of toxic materials on oceanic life-forms, environments and their ecologies; sculpture from South Korean artist Yena Park whose ‘Project: Post-Future Ground’ (ongoing since 2020), is a collection of low value found objects and materials that she has reconfigured and modified to question our relationship with the artificial material world; photographic and moving images by artist Tom Graystone taken on Skye that have been coded into textile pieces and animated vignettes; adapted ready-made sculpture by Penny Anderson whose work ‘Enargeia Arcade’ presents the possessions of the fictional Enargeia Crow – the notorious, ruthless and eccentric billionaire who died broken and penniless; a diorama by artist Alice Zonca who composes environments that house her sculptures; two new works by Julia Hoogkamer themed around the human body, science, technology and nature; work in response to the Sonoran landscape by Alexander Anderson who is based in Arizona; and new work from Glasgow-based Russell McGovern exploring what happens to an object and our relationship with it as it is gradually atomised.
The Strata Collective was established in 2020 at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Over the past two years, eight artists from the MLitt Sculpture Pathway at The Glasgow School of Art have supported each other and worked together to find innovative and imaginative ways to continue their practice during and post pandemic. This exhibition is a mix of new work and work created while studying at the GSA, using casting, carving, sound, ceramics, woodworking, textiles, and digital methods, as well as adapted ready-mades. It illustrates the strength of their collective approach, and the high-level creative output they still managed to achieve during lockdown.
In 2021, with support from Creative Scotland, the Strata Collective exhibited for the first time since graduating in August 2020 at the New Glasgow Society. The Collective’s next show Expanse will open at the Pipe Factory in Glasgow later in 2022.
