Beth Collar in-residence: exploring all things female narrative at Glasgow Women’s Library

Wewioraprojects are delighted to confirm London based artist Beth Collar as artist-in-residence at Glasgow Women’s Library commencing her 3 week research and development time on 5th August.

Beth will be exploring the vast and uniquely diverse archives at GWL with everything from the suffragettes and GBLT groups to female badge collections and witchcraft!

Regular posts about her time will be viewable via our blog site so do keep an eye out to see how Beth responds to the Collection and indeed the venue itself during this time.

Working across video, sound, drawing and performance, Beth’s practice raises questions about the construction of a collective historical consciousness and the desire to commune with pasts both real and imagined. Using her body as cipher for narrative, she engages improvised performative languages, favouring subjective interpretation over the universal, to interrogate archetypal themes such as manhood and war.
What better female artist then to respond to Wewioraprojects current developing project ‘Tall Tales’ within such a perfect context of Glasgow Women’s Library.
Beth will be in-residence from 5th August – 27th August 2014 with open door days for the public to see her on-site during the last few days. More details to follow soon!
This residency has kindly been supported by Grants for the Arts, Arts Council England
