Uist Corrigan

Uist Corrigan’s artistic practice uses sculptural processes and object making as a catalyst to explore and understand the world. People throughout history have attached significance and value to material objects; this is something that Corrigan finds fascinating. He believes that through our relationships with objects and materiality we can gain a better understanding of the world we live in, and those we share it with. Collecting stories and skills has always been key to his work and is currently facilitated by his role as artist technician at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop. He works in a variety of mediums including, wood, forged steel and cast metals such as bronze and iron.

Ayelet Ben Dor, Jedrzej Cichosz, Uist Corrigan, Roi Carmeli, Judith Leupi, Jonny Lyons, Tom Krasny, Tim Sandys and Alex Stursberg

Holy Wave

Exhibition

Holy Wave touches on the connection between art and ritual; a connection less obvious today, as art becomes increasingly self-reflective, and religious rituals abide by rules stemming from years of unchanged worship. It remains essential, however, in understanding art’s role in contemporary society and spiritual life.

The artists view the art object as charged with power; a combination of intention and action; of emotions and thoughts that cannot be separated from material and labour.

Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces.

Fri 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Sun, 12 noon – 7pm
