Solo exhibition of newly commissioned work by Sarah Forrest


P is for Protagonist is a time based installation that is the culmination of Sarah Forrest's one-year Gordon Foundation Graduate Fellowship at Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS). This major new solo exhibition brings together new video, sculpture, creative writing and a newly commissioned text by international art critic Jan Verwoert. For P is for Protagonist, Forrest draws upon certain sensibilities found within gothic literature, paying particular attention to what is not seen. Forrest places her protagonists at the edge of visibility, presenting them in the text as a subject who comes in and out of focus or as a spectral presence within the video work. The work presents two concurrent narratives that unfold and overlap, putting into play as they do so, her ongoing exploration of the interrelationships between maker, work and viewer. Forrest will also launch her first publication alongside this exhibition on Saturday 10 December 2011 at GSS. The publication is designed in collaboration with Glasgow-based graphic designer, Zeynep Arman.
