Katherine MacBride. DIY Deep Listening Workshop

Studio Jamming: Artists' Collaborations in Scotland

Full Eye Studio Jamming Hub Week

Katherine MacBride. DIY Deep Listening Workshop

Thursday 17 July 2014, 4.30 – 7.30pm

For their Studio Jamming Hub Week, Full Eye have invited artist Katherine MacBride to lead a group workshop using a DIY approach to explore composer Pauline Oliveros's collaborative deep listening exercises.

The event is intended to be an exploratory and inclusive collaborative peer group exercise. The workshop will involve some gentle body-based relaxation exercises; improvised individual and group composition exercises using clapping, walking and breathing rhythms; some initial attempts at tuning into deep listening; some feedback and talking through of what is happening and perhaps some further exercises that put everything together at the end (time-allowing).

Workshop suitable for all (16+), please RSVP to if you plan to attend.

Katherine MacBride is an artist and art therapist based in Glasgow. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2005 and in 2010 completed a MSc in Art Psychotherapy at QMU, Edinburgh. Recent exhibitions include Polyvocal Subjects, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, 2014, The Obliging, The Obliged, Intermedia, CCA, Glasgow 2013 and I Can Make You Feel Good, Glasgow Project Room, 2012.

Full Eye

From 14 – 19 July, when Full Eye occupies the Cooper Gallery for their Hub week, Copestake, Dove and Porteous extend their collaborative circle and invite other artists to deliver workshops responding to their shared exploration of mantra through acts of writing, deep listening, vocal technique and percussion. These events comprise of a DIY Deep Listening Workshop with artist Katherine MacBride on 17 July, an electronic music production workshop with musician Jamie Grier on 18 July, culminating with Full Eye’s debut live music performance amidst their installation in Cooper Gallery on 19 July.

Full Eye is a new collaboration formed by Anne-Marie Copestake, Katy Dove and Ariki Porteous in response to the propositions of Studio Jamming. Through a shared interest in music, moving image, vocalisation, instrument making, sound, performance and visual art, Copestake, Dove and Porteous collaborated previously as Muscles of Joy performing at Glasgow International, Stereo, Glasgow, 2010, Subject in Process: Feminism in Art, CCA, Glasgow, 2009, Moot Points, Transmission Gallery, Glasgow, 2008.

For Studio Jamming, Full Eye are creating a multimedia installation. Using sound, light and colour to evoke ideas of suggestion, memory and perception, this new work evolves in response to the temporal changes taking place across the Studio Jamming Hub.

Studio Jamming: Artist's Collaborations in Scotland

Preview (with performance by GANGHUT): 28 June 2014, 6.00 – 8.00pm

Exhibition: 30 June – 2 August 2014

Taking its cue from the live improvised excitement of musical jamming, Cooper Gallery in Dundee presents Studio Jamming: Artists’ Collaborations in Scotland; the first discursive survey to foreground the grassroots character of artists’ collaboration that has contributed to the remarkable achievements of contemporary art in Scotland.

Adopting a diverse curatorial approach the project is comprised of exhibitions, a dynamic event series and a Group Critical Writing Residency, culminating in a 12-hour Jamming Symposium.

Studio Jamming is set to re-search, annotate, contextualise and celebrate artists’ collaboration as a particular phenomenon of artistic practice in Scotland. The key ingredient for this process is the Studio Jamming Hub, an architectural intervention constructed in and around Cooper Gallery that is to be designed by Studio Miessen led by Markus Miessen, an alumni of GSA and now a leading thinker in Critical Spatial Practice. Developing as a live critical discourse, the Studio Jamming Hub acts as a collaborative ‘site’ where artists, writers, architects, educators, researchers, performers, cultural thinkers and participants present, reflect upon and elaborate the possibilities and histories embedded in artists’ collaborations.

Among the highlights of Studio Jamming is the presentation of new works from artists’ collaborative groups including Graham Eatough & Graham Fagen, Full Eye, Ganghut and Henry VIII’s Wives. The artists’ collaborative groups will occupy the Studio Jamming Hub for a week each to present new works and events between 30 June – 2 August.

Studio Jamming will be annotated and collated through (LIVE) publishing, a series of free publications created, printed and disseminated in situ, edited by Sean Scott and Katie Reid.
