Alistair Grant (b. 1990, Manchester, England) lives and works in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland.
Grant has recently moved from investigating the fertile and elusive notions around wild(er)ness, towards new thematic frontiers of space and science-fiction. Despite this shift, similar questions are raised. Through his work, Grant puts himself against these backdrops and in doing so uses his own presence as a lens for illuminating humanity’s place and intentions within these respective environments. Grant works across the mediums of Sculpture, Installation, Video Performance and Digital Worlds.
