We are delighted to announce that the practitioners selected for the 2016/2017 Graduate Residency Programme are Aaron McCarthy and Zoé Schreiber. During the 9-month programme Aaron will take up residence our studios in the heart of the historic Barras Market, whilst we will be working with Zoé remotely from Brussels and she will be engaging with the programme through a series of on-site events. For more information please visit our website.
Zoé Schreiber is a Belgian visual artist and writer working with photography, drawing and the moving image. Memory and representation are the main concerns of her practice, which stems from a need to make sense of her multi-cultural identity. In her work, she oscillates between private and public spheres as she investigates personal histories and relates them to historical narratives. Working with the past and its ephemera, she seeks to counter the process of erasure of marginalised histories.
This September she obtained a MLitt in Photography and the Moving Image from the Glasgow School of Art. In 2015 she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Sciences Po Paris Euro-American Campus in Reims, having spent a year in the United States as an exchange student at Wellesley College.
Aaron McCarthy is an artist working in Scotland. With an academic background in continental philosophy (Art, Philosophy & Contemporary Practice, BA, DJCAD 2014) his work is developed through multidisciplinary discussions and perspectives, working as an individual and with other practitioners.
Since graduating his interests are based within sculptural installations, publications and screening events. Recent projects include a solo exhibition (NEW PYRE, Intermedia Gallery, CCA Glasgow 2016) and temporary installation and guided walks (PRIVY, as part of the Scottish Sculpture Workshop Open Weekend 2016).
