ACCESS THE EVENT
A TALK WITH ARTIST GILLIAN MCFARLAND
My work investigates the space between things, transitions in states
of being and connections through responses to the passage of time.
Collaborating with artists and scientists has offered new and
exciting ways of sharing thinking through making and working
together. I am interested in exploring this space between ‘not
knowing’ and then the ‘knowing’ . These states are where the
making of art inhabits and also the study of the Universe.
Gillian trained at St Martins, has won many awards with her work
and exhibited nationally and internationally including exhibiting
regularly at the Mall Galleries, London and Royal Scottish
Academy, Edinburgh.She is currently in receipt of a Creative
Scotland Award and a Diawa Grant and is working on several
collaborations focusing on COP26 later this year.
Gillian enjoys working across disciplines and processes and
the excitement this brings to new work.
