19th March – 1st May
Temporary Studio is a collaborative project led by Aberdeen-based artists Kirsty Russell and Amber Robertson. For Go Here, the artists have focused on unseen or overlooked aspects of the Foresterhill Campus, to encourage a second glance at some of the nooks and crannies of this place, from staircases and doors, to plants and trees. Throughout the duration of the exhibition The Suttie Arts Space will act as a tourist information point for the site, with Kirsty and Amber hosting pop-up events throughout Foresterhill, as ‘tour guides’ for Go Here. The postcards are useable, and please feel free to take one away!
Go Here coincides with The Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016, a year in which numerous new events and initiatives are taking place across Scotland to ‘celebrate awe-inspiring innovation, breathtaking architecture and brave, bold designs through new and exciting experiences and events.’
Temporary Studio was set up by Kirsty Russell and Amber Robertson after graduating from Gray’s School of Art in 2014 with the ambition of ‘adapting to the needs of local artists’. They currently have a studio in The Anatomy Rooms, at Marischal College, and in late 2015 they were selected for an artist residency at Truck Contemporary Art in Calgary, Canada.
