Bring Your own Beamer | Edinburgh | 2014


31st January 2014
Edinburgh College of Art, Sculpture Court
7pm - 11pm

BYOB, or Bring Your Own Beamer, is a one-night exhibition inviting different artists from around the country to transform Edinburgh College of Art’s Sculpture Court into a dynamic and enveloping multi-sensory spectacle of moving image, digital art, performance art, sound art and music. BYOB is a commentary on the modern world which often generates overwhelming situations in which one is surrounded by a multiplicity of undulating, fluctuating, pulsating, digitised visuals and information.

The exhibition format has been enacted by Rafa√ęl Rozendaal and has been created worldwide since 2010.

Scott Rogers: Negative Miracle
25 January – 01 March 2014

Gallery open 11am - 5pm Wednesday - Saturday or by appointment


Born out of his one year Graduate Fellowship at Glasgow Sculpture Studios from November 2012 until November 2013. Negative Miracle is Rogers' first major solo exhibition since graduating from the MFA at Glasgow School of Art in June 2012 and his first solo presentation in Scotland.

Consisting of new works in video, sound, sculpture, and drawing, Scott Rogers’ exhibition continues his interest in the tensions between ideals and their actualization. In Negative Miracle Rogers conceives this relationship as a site of decay. Rogers’ sculptural work for the exhibition involves numerous experiments with surface and artifice. Many of the objects display a patina, the marks and indexes of deterioration serving as an ambiguous cipher that mixes real labour with its representation.

The exhibition will conclude with a new performance and the launch of a publication, both by the artist. Titled Goosebumps the publication includes a newly commissioned fictional text by science-fiction author Mark von Schlegell.

Scott Rogers is a Canadian artist based in Glasgow. He graduated from the MFA from the Glasgow School of Art in 2012 which included an academic exchange at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. Selected solo exhibitions include Oasen (collaboration with Sarah Rose), Artspace, Auckland, NZ (2013), Occasional Fix (collaboration with Sarah Rose), Dog Park, Christchurch, NZ (2013), Meanders Into Nonesuch Place ONO Gallery, Oslo, Wireframe American University, Beirut (2011), Area Studies PM Galerie, Berlin, Wireframe Khyber ICA, Halifax, CA.
