Charlotte Prodger receives Paul Hamlyn Award


Charlotte Prodger (MFA 2010) is a Glasgow-based artist who works with moving image, writing and performance, exploring the intertextual relationships between each of these materials. Narrative fragments gleaned from different places and points of her life are shown in parallel to reveal ongoing enquiry into the contingency and intimacy of materials. Prodger’s installations and performances look at what happens to speech - and the self for which it is a conduit - as it metamorphoses via time, space and technological systems.

Having moved through various deconstructed modes of presentation including sculptural multi-monitor installations, Prodger is now focusing on single channel, long form videos. In this immersive context she finds possibilities for more complex relationships between image and sound, subject and object. Her recent videos Stoneymollan Trail (2015), BRIDGIT (2017), Passing as a Great Grey Owl (2017) and LHB (2017) explore intertwined relationships between queer bodies, landscape, language, technology and time.

Solo shows include Sculpture Centre, New York; Bergen Kunsthall; Kunstverein D├╝sseldorf; Glasgow International; Studio Voltaire, London; Spike Island, Bristol; Koppe Astner, Glasgow; Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin and Hollybush Gardens, London. Groups shows and screenings include Tate Britain, London; New York Film Festival; Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival; British Art Show 8; K├╝nstlerhaus Graz; Artists Space, New York; Pier Arts, Orkney and Kunsthalle Freiburg. Prodger’s writing has been published in F.R.DAVID, 2HB, Frieze and Happy Hypocrite. She graduated from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in 2010.

Aideen Doran CCA Creative Lab residency

Aideen Doran will be using her CCA Creative Lab residency to develop a screenplay for a new moving image work. Through a series of workshops, screenings and discussions, Doran will explore the challenges that advanced prosthetics and sensory substitution technology present to established ideas of identity and the authentic or natural body. By focusing on innovative research on neural interfaces for prosthetic limbs and sensory impairments, Doran will be reflecting on the politics and aesthetics of the technologically augmented body, and exploring the affective dimensions of the symbiosis of human bodies and inorganic matter.

This project aims to address timely questions of how we differentiate between bodies, objects and technologies when the boundaries that separate them are increasingly ambiguous. How do new technologies challenge established ideas of what constitutes thinking and non-thinking matter, self and other? Current developments in artificial intelligence systems, robotics and biomechanical engineering, from machine ‘sight’ to chatbots and battlefield robotics begin to blur the boundaries between traditional dualities of life and non-life, object and subject, and move technological innovation into the realm of affective experience.

Aideen Doran is a visual artist whose practice traverses moving image, installation and writing. Her work attempts to ‘make strange’ the stuff of the world by introducing ambiguity, contingency and subjectivity into our fragmented representations of objective reality. Doran graduated from the MFA programme at Glasgow School of Art has recently completed a PhD in Visual Arts Practice with Northumbria University. In 2016 she was shortlisted for the Margaret Tait award for moving image artists based in Scotland, and her work has been supported by The British Council, Northern Film and Media and The Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
