Mark Haddon curates a show spanning a range of media including installation and performance, with new work from artists Stephanie Mann and Faith Limbrick.

One Blue Pigeon will consider how apparently absurd conjunctions of elements can be brought together to construct alternative realities. The constructions of Faith Limbrick and Stephanie Mann span across a range of media including installation and performance. Stephanie and Faith’s work has a self-willed freedom which allows the artists to explore concepts, form and process in a untrammelled, unfettered way. Their art, as a result, is playful, often brightly coloured, inventive and provocative.

Stephanie Mann makes moving and still images which recontextualise happenings in the subconscious, using objects as condensation points. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art MFA Contemporary Art Practice in 2013 and is currently based at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. Awards include the John Watson Prize, Andrew Grant Bequest Award & Scholarship and the John Kinross Travel Scholarship. Recent projects include: LOOKING BACK LOOKING FORWARD, Turf Gallery, London; The Artist Traveller, Royal Scottish Academy; Call and Response: Women in Surrealism, Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; Alone with Other People, Chisenhale Dance, London and The transparent tortoise shell and the un-ripe umbrella, Glasgow Sculpture Studios.

Faith Limbrick is an artist and filmmaker based in Edinburgh. She moved to Scotland to study Intermedia at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 2012. Her work involves prop making, sound design and paper sculpture. The work investigates the functions of the imagination, its relationship to buildings, landscape and narrative. From 2015-17 Faith was a committee member at Rhubaba, an artist led project space in Edinburgh. She was involved in collectively programming the gallery’s project space alongside running the studios.
