Residents is the conclusion of a project supported by Creative Cargo (Glasgow Sculpture
Studio’s learning and engagement programme) and Glasgow Life where Beth has worked
with local groups developing relationships and ideas for interaction between her
work and the community.
The installation sits somewhere between painting and sculpture amongst a pile of
beached edging stones that line the canal. The forms and colours used are intrinsically
linked to a screen print produced for Local Press, a neighbourhood exhibition produced
in partnership with Creative Cargo and Queens Cross Housing Association where limited
edition prints were given away free to visitors. It’s intended that people who
own the prints might happen upon this work which is visually recognisable, although
the context, environment, scale and material have been altered. The work will remain
on-site for three months until October 11th.
Thanks to Friends of Possilpark Greenspace who look after the site, Creative Cargo,
Maryhill Community Central Hall The Princes Trust Group and Glasgow Life.
