Glasgow International 2020

Alannah Clamp

Alannah Clamp was born in Vancouver, Canada. She has previously studied art at Emily Carr University in Vancouver and art history at Concordia University in Montreal.

Clamp uses photography, video and performance to explore themes such as failure, antihero, and potential; questioning the structures that dictate content and success. Clamp has exhibited across Canada and most recently participated in the Calgary Biennale. Clamp recently graduated from the M.F.A program at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland.

Social Dramas


Glasgow-born anthropologist Victor Turner was renowned for his concept of ‘social drama’; the process by which a group of people can break apart and through time can either come back together, or change forever. Busswood and Clamp get to grips with this influential concept using video to play out the four stages of social drama – rupture, crisis, redress and finally, reintegration or schism.

Busswood and Clamp have recently graduated from the Glasgow School of Art Masters programme, and often work in domestic settings, exploring themes of communication and representation.
