SATURDAY 19th MAY, 7 - 9pm

(Gallery open THURS - SUN, 12 - 5pm)

Our annual graduate show THEY HAD FOUR YEARS showcases artists selected from the previous years Scottish Degree Show.

The 2012 edition will feature newly commmisioned works from CALVIN LAING, ROMANY DEAR & NEIL NODZAK 

CALVIN LAING (Edinburgh College of Art) focuses mainly on performance; looking at the potential of objects and situations.
Ideologically revolving around the concept of reporduction of performance, Laing is interested in playing with the perception of reality and creating false elements within reality.
Using himself as a ready-made object and interacting with the given environment, Laing will present new work that captures and preserves the visceral immediacy of a live performance as it is transferred into another medium.

Fascinated in the way we, as people, move, ROMANY DEAR (Glasgow School of Art) employs video and audio based works in an attempt to
choreograph the commonalities within the way we all move into something that could potentially be read as dance; creating a situation that heightens our
awareness of movement and encourages us all to 'move a little bit mor

NEIL NODZAK's (Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design) work is ultimately concerned with the intention of creating a visual representation of hypothetical spaces in constant flux.
Focusing on the idea of a real life representation of the hyper-optimistic vision/atmosphere seen in concept art and scale models,
Nozdak will present 'a real life version of something that should only ever have existed as an idea'.
