Gordon Foundation MFA Graduate Fellowship 2011

We are delighted to announce that this year’s Gordon Foundation MFA Graduate Fellowship has been awarded to Alex Impey.

The announcement was made public on Wednesday, 08 June 2011 at The Glasgow School of Art’s Master of Fine Art (MFA) Degree Show preview by the Head of the Programme, John Calcutt.

Impey's work spans across drawing, sculpture, sound and writing. He'll begin his fellowship in November 2011and we look forward to working with him over the coming year.

'A tick can stay dormant for eighteen years when isolated from the conditions that trigger its behaviour. My work attempts to appropriate something of this inscrutable poise, in a set of figurations as pauses in habits around the use of languages and objects, which simultaneously seek to refer to their own consumption.' Alex Impey

If you would like to catch Alex’s work and the rest of the MFA Degree Show it runs until Saturday 18 June 2011. Opening Times 11am-6pm Tuesday - Saturday at The Glue Factory 15 Burns Street Speirs Locks Glasgow G4.
