Minty Donald

Minty Donald (b. 1961 in Bellshill, Lanarkshire, Scotland)  Lives and works in Glasgow and Madrid. Minty Donald is an artist, researcher and Professor of Contemporary Performance Practice at the University of Glasgow. Her practice, which she regularly undertakes with artist, Nick Millar, explores interrelationships between humans and the other-than-human environments that they shape, build and inhabit; environments that also, reciprocally, mould and permeate them. Her practice takes multiple forms, determined by the context in which she is working, but has entailed performance, sculpture, participatory events, and writing. In her practice, she treats other-than-human matter as a collaborator, acknowledging its liveliness and agency, while also recognising the limits and inequalities of human/other-than-human collaboration. Her recent practice focuses on interrelationships between humans and rivers or other watercourses.
