Sarah Forrest - exhibition
Glasgow Sculpture Studios would like to invite you to join us for the preview of P is for Protagonist the solo exhibition of newly commissioned work by Sarah Forrest, The Gordon Foundation MFA Graduate Fellow 2010-11.
7pm – 9pm
Saturday 26 November 2011
Gallery 2, Glasgow Sculpture Studios
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.
Born in Dundee UK 1981, Forrest received her MFA at The Glasgow School of Art in 2010.
