Samara Scott Belt and Road

Posted on 20 Jul 2018 in News, Visual Art

​From the 3rd August to the 26th October, Tramway presents artist Samara Scott's most ambitious exhibition to date, Belt and Road. 

Scott has created a large site specific installation in response to Tramway’s main gallery.

Scott’s work is improvised in situ, using fluid and supple materials - toilet paper, milk, soil and cleaning products are just some of the substances that have made up her alchemic collages.

At Tramway Scott literally suspends these miscellaneous accumulations - sourced from around Glasgow - to create a translucent, putrid, and seductive expanse which hovers ominously above the viewer.

Samara Scott lives and works in London. Selected solo shows include Jacobs Creek, The Sunday Painter, Offsite / Four Six One Nine , Los Angeles, 2016; and Pumphouse & Battersea Park, London, 2016. Selected group shows include Inflected Objects # 2 Circulation – Otherwise, Unhinged curated by Melanie Buehler, Future Gallery, Berlin, 2016; and The transparent tortoiseshell and the un-ripe umbrella, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, Glasgow, 2016
