Ric Warren (b. 1986 in Barnsley, England) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. His work is informed by an interest in spatial and social politics, Warren’s digital collages and sculptural installations take reference from architectural structures, social signifiers, and geological features that designate, demarcate or disrupt shifting spatial territories.
Solo/Collaborative shows include: Greyfield (Scott Brotherton & Ric Warren), House for an Art Lover, Glasgow, Scotland (2016); Preventative Measures: On The Spatial Dynamics of Control, Counteraction, & Conflict, Superclub Gallery, Edinburgh, Scotland (2012); Borders, Boundaries & Barricades: Redeveloping Geographies of Division, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland (2011);
Group shows include: DASIES, SWG3 Project Space, Glasgow, Scotland (2016); The Ultimate Vessel, Koppe Astner, Glasgow, Scotland (2015); Finite Project Altered When Open, David Dale Gallery, Glasgow, Scotland (2015); Higgs / Riepenhoff / Warren, SWG3 Project Space, Glasgow, Scotland (2014); Industrial Aesthetics, Hunter College, New York, USA (2011); UNREST, CCA Intermedia, Glasgow, Scotland (2011); THE SHOW IS OVER, Cornish College of Art, Seattle, USA (2011); Characters In Search Of An Exit, MOT International, London, England (2011).
Utilising the garden area of Mount Florida Gallery & Studios, Warren has created an open-air installation of sculptural partitions based on construction-site hoardings, boundary fences, geological features and ancient standing stones that explore man-made versus natural demarcations of territory, and resistance to such forms. These structures incorporate printed works that consider how urban aesthetics are represented within rural spaces.
Other events and collaborations will take place within the sculptural environment throughout the festival.
