Marion Ferguson (b. 1978, Inverness, Scotland) lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. Ferguson’s work examines the landscape tradition via printmaking. The centred position of the viewer is blocked in her installed work, refusing to give them a privileged position to survey the sublime spectacle. Both subject and object (the landscape) are put in process; neither are finally knowable – yet are there.
Solo shows include: In September dawns I hardly breathe, collaboration with Jennifer R.Wicks, The Pipe Factory, Glasgow, Scotland (2017).
Group Exhibitions include: Hidden Door, The Old Leith Theatre, Edinburgh, Scotland (2017); A Disturbance of Memory with Jennifer R. Wicks, The Briggait, Glasgow, Scotland (2016); -scape, Glasgow International, 1 Royal Terrace, Glasgow, Scotland (2016); Information, Generation, Paisley Museum and Art Galleries, Paisley, Scotland (2014).

Between preservation and immanent decay
Responding to common research interests including landscape, liminality and materiality, these four artists seek to push the boundaries of medium specificity and interdisciplinarity through an ambitious use of four of the Laurieston Arches.
In a site-specific response to the location as a post-industrial, ‘post-purpose’ space, ‘Between preservation and immanent decay’ navigates the arches’ history as a railway site, through its transition from disuse to a place for cultural experimentation. The artists will transform the site into a highly considered, cohesive exhibition space.
Supported by WAVEparticle as part of the award-winning Laurieston Art Strategy: Open Spaces, and Creative Scotland.
