Louise Gibson

Louise Gibson (b.1985, Glasgow, Scotland) graduated from Edinburgh Collage of Art in 2009 and in 2013 relocated the studio to Berlin. In 2014 she was granted a long term private residency placement on a metal recycling yard on the outskirts of the city in Lichtenberg where one of her studios is based. Gibson is currently living in Glasgow where she is making a body of new work and pursuing a research project.

Gibson predominantly combines polyester resins with recycled fabrics, using various practical processes to complete work, sculpting casts at marble factories, moulding metals with onsite metal recycling machinery and lacquering art works at local car garages.

Group shows include: The Fall of The Rebel Angels 56th Venice Biennale 2015, and The Berlin Art Prize 2014.

Gibson has created public Art commissions for The Grove Hotel In London and interior structures such as a cast resin Elevator ceiling in collectors suite Smartloft Art and Apartments in Mitte Berlin.

Exhibition

Vibrant and visceral, curious and re-imagined, this large-scale exhibition is composed with materials collected from previous constructs from the city of Glasgow.

The artists have created a programme of workshops, live digital drawing, talks and discussion for all ages to get involved with. Their aim is to work individually and as a unit, utilising each other’s skillsets to create an energetic place for the public to engage with over the course of the festival.

Event
Workshop

A creative practical workshop for young people A interdisciplinary practical workshop for primary school children from the ages of 9-12.

The group will look at some of our commonly discarded household materials, studying their shape, colour, texture and original functions e.g. plastic bags, packaging, crisp packets,plastic bottles etc. We will then explore some examples of artists work that has been created using similar materials. They will then make their own piece of art using similar materials provided. The type of art they choose to make that is inspired by the workshop will be varied from building sculpture,drawing,creative writing or dance and movement. The themes of recycling, respecting our environment and minimising waste will run throughout whilst also exploring what Art can be and how to spot it in our everyday lives.

Aims / outcomes – To explore making and craft using a variety of materials whilst also educating children on the processes of recycling in a fun and comfortable environment. To explore making and craft using a variety of materials whilst also educating children on the processes of recycling in a fun and comfortable environment. To encourage working on creative ideas in a group and to be imaginative with simple objects and shapes. To introduce young children to Artists and what they make out with traditional methods of fine art.

The lead artist and teaching team will work energetically and sensitively with the group so all participants enjoy the experience and take away not only a finished artwork but hopefully leave enthused to do similar activities at home and with friends. The workshop will be very well structured and have a good selection of materials to works with so that children are stimulated sufficiently to keep and interest in the activities.

The workshop is designed for children ages 9-12.

The teaching staff will provide the materials needed for workshops and Aprons for children. There will also be light refreshments for children and parents. Parents of younger children are welcome to stay for the duration of the workshop if they wish. The exhibition space is in the centre of town so there are also plenty of shops and cafes in the surrounding area.

The workshops are on a sign up basis and open to all children interested in taking part.

Accessibility – There is excellent accessibility within the building , elevators and disabled access to all floors. There is a toilet on level 4-one floor down from the exhibition space. Parking is limited but there is very good public transport in the area.
