Curatorial artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. Art Director of Stillpoint Magazine.



Is it about madness, this? Collective and individual psychosis? Because it feels like that to you, these weeks, these months, these moments… You think of how the artist’s role could be to pierce a hole through it, but it makes you tired. Lithium returns—a sedative, an extracted material, a tool for oppression, an ingredient in the most recent form of war in the mind…

Dissemination is influenced by strategies that defy, in some way, the sublimation into this surveilled, extracted state of being. Which is, you at least ackowledge, a convenient fiction of sovereign self.

Still, you hedge your bets.
