Coinciding with the COP26 talks, Edinburgh’s Summerhall has launched its autumn/winter exhibition programme with work by the creative collective Studio Imposters, founded by Olja Mladjenovic and Helena Vondrus: Floi comprises audio work formed by data and field recordings from an at-risk peat bog. Also, Scott Hunter examines the harmful legacy of fossil fuels on the environment with his work Am I the Wasteland, and Jodi Le Bigre considers humankind’s relationship with coral after a recent coral-bleaching event, with her show Our Unfathomable Depths (pictured). And showing alongside these is Maria McCavana‘s Women’s Work, exploring the relationship between women working in the NHS and the tools they need to do their jobs – very much in the spotlight recently with the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is the first exhibition programme at the centre since the recent lockdowns, and the first for new Visual Arts Manager Samantha Chapman.
The programme comprises four exhibitions in separate spaces on the centre’s two floors (images Summerhall):
