HESTER GRANT ANNOUNCED AS CIRCUS' FORTH GRADUATE INTERNSHIP
We are delighted to introduce Hester Grant who finished her BA (hons) at Moray College UHI in 2016. Selected opportunities include being an information assistant for Graham Fagan's Scotland + Venice presentation and exhibiting in the New Highland Contemporaries, Nairn Book & Art Festival.
Inspired by the crude aesthetics of artists such as Isa Genzken, Aurel Schmidt, Ryan Trecartin and filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky, her practice explores the concept of "obscenity", the objectification of women and lad culture's affects on contemporary society. Hester's experimental approach means she works in many mediums from drawing, collage and printmaking to film, performance and installation.
"I'm really excited to start my Graduate Internship and be part of the team. I am very much looking forward to helping set up for exhibitions and meeting the artists. I believe Circus has been extremely valuable in pushing forward and showcasing contemporary art in Inverness and the Highlands. I feel very honoured to now be part of it." Hester Grant
