Presented as part of Glasgow International 2018
Jessica will create a new art work that is informed by and responds to our setting: our architecture and people. Working closely with Platform, Ramm reflects upon the emotional effects of the spaces we live and work in, presenting performances and sculptures that explore the possibilities of ‘home-made’ architecture as an aesthetic and political statement.
The construction processes Ramm uses are informed by her experience of growing up in an 80’s squatting community with a radical DIY ethos. For GI 2018 she will present a series of temporary structures that will occupy and respond to the architecture of Platform. Developed in the run up to the festival through a programme of workshops and events led by Ramm, these structures will present new versions of familiar domestic spaces; restaging an urban environment that resembles Easterhouse.
