STUDIO PROJECTS 2018: AMY GEAR

Market Gallery is excited to announce this year's Studio Projects residents: Amy Gear and Ailie Ormston!

For this six week residency, Amy Gear will be splicing together stories of stones and sex to carve new sculptural and sound work. Amy will develop the work focusing on the human voice – its accents and dialects, the tongue and it’s uses (a multifunctional tool for place, for intimacy, and taste). Surrounded by Glasgow’s rich accents - mother tongues will vibrate through the research and slip into the final work, softly culminating in performance. Meanwhile, stories told and created will form the bases for sculptures – a new landscape generated around the soft and sharp edges of language.
