Exhibitions New Work Scotland Programme

For New Work Scotland Programme, Andy Wake made a series of performances and happenings. From Tuesday to Saturday, the gallery was be open to transitory experiences of Demons, Artisans and Dirges. Andy takes on the role of the storyteller, landscape and language creating acts and objects which take place outside palpable reckoning. The work aimed to place the audience behind boundaries of the artist's inaccessibly self-created folklore and mythology and bear witness to the tales and legends created during the week.

New Work Scotland Programme was an initiative launched by Collective in 2000. Through an open call, New Work Scotland Programme identified and supported some of the most promising new artists working in Scotland - providing them with the opportunity to create new work and bring it to the attention of a wider public. The 2007 participants were Holly McCulloch, Oliver Herbert, Andy Wake, Jason Nelson and Tessa Lynch.

New Writing Scotland grew out of New Work Scotland Programme and was initiated in 2004 in collaboration with Edinburgh College of Art's Centre for Visual and Cultural Studies, to promote creative writing about the visual arts coupled with targeted support to the exhibiting artists - providing them with them with their first artists text.
