About Carrie Skinner
Carrie Skinner is a visual artist working with performance based in Glasgow. She is into figuring out contemporary cultural relationships with time and its multiple concepts through popular imagery and themes from Gothic and Science-Fiction genres. Recent projects include; ‘let the music play on and on and on and on and on and on and on’, CCA, Glasgow, 2019; ‘on the waves of the air, there’s dancing out there’ Glasgow International Festival, 2018; ‘woah oh oh oh, on the radio -adio –adio’, Radiophrenia, Glasgow, 2017; ‘there’s a party going on right here’ TAKE ME SOMEWHERE festival, Tron Theatre, Glasgow, 2017. She has been getting to grips with an experimental performance practice that switches between the languages and conventions of gallery and theatre, and getting overexcited by the contradictions of presenting, documenting and archiving the ephemeral moment of performance. She has performed in ‘Cadaver Police In Quest Of Aquatraz Exit’ by Alan McKendrick (National Theatre Of Scotland & Staatstheater Nürnberg 2019), and has facilitated exhibitions and events for independent galleries and project spaces, including Transmission Gallery, Patricia Fleming Studio and The Mutual, which she co-founded in 2009.
