WELCOME OUR NEW INTERNS:
JACK KAY & HOLLY OSBORNE
Thank you to everyone who took the time to apply for our internship. We are delighted to introduce our two Circus interns who will help to deliver all our forthcoming activities this Autumn as well as develop some new projects of their own for the programme.
Jack Kay graduated from BA (hons) Contemporary Art and Contextualised Practice at Inverness College UHI in 2018 and earlier this year he was artists in residence at the new Caladar Arts studios and gallery in Cawdor. Jack's work uses alternative materials such as leather, acid and resin as well as industrial and domestic objects to produce sculptural compositions which illustrate the social and personal political aspects which affected the everyday lives of people.
"I'm looking forward to working with the Circus artists collective; learning what it takes to create, support and maintain connections in the visual arts, as well as realising a new project through collaboration." Jack Kay
Holly Osborne graduated from BA (hons) Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art in 2018 and received the New Graduate Award from the Society of Scottish Artists. Earlier this year Holly completed a residency and exhibition at 16 Nicholson Street in Glasgow. Holly's practice reflects on the mundane routines of everyday life, she is a collector of images and drawing from contemporary sources, which engaging with our relationship to image in the Post Internet condition. Staged, awkward figures come into play with a disquieting humour, as she aims to unsettle and seduce with these darkly comical characters.
"Since graduating from GSA and moving back home to the Highlands, I felt a little disconnected and lost with a support group around me and was worried there would be a lack of opportunities for recent graduates in the north. However, since finding out about the Circus Artspace and becoming their intern, I’m excited to make connections with artists in the area, skill share and become part of an up and coming hub for contemporary art." Holly Osborne
