Jessica will create a new art work that is informed by and responds to our setting: our architecture and people. Working closely with Platform, Ramm reflects upon the emotional effects of the spaces we live and work in, presenting performances and sculptures that explore the possibilities of ‘home-made’ architecture as an aesthetic and political statement.

The construction processes Ramm uses are informed by her experience of growing up in an 80’s squatting community with a radical DIY ethos. For GI 2018 she will present a series of temporary structures that will occupy and respond to the architecture of Platform. Developed in the run up to the festival through a programme of workshops and events led by Ramm, these structures will present new versions of familiar domestic spaces; restaging an urban environment that resembles Easterhouse.

Exhibition: Fri 20 April – Sun 27 May* (free)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Jessica Ramm: Personal Structures are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
