This residency is part of the nationwide RSA Residencies for Scotland Programme.

Madeleine Virginia Brown is a visual artist based in Glasgow. Her practice is primarily performance based and privileges the human body, exploring the tensions between embodied subjectivity and the body as spectacle. Her work explores themes of narcissism, voyeurism and exhibitionism; as well as reflecting on the performance of daily life, and how we perform our identities and social relationships.

The artist’s proposed project for her one-month residency at Cove Park will involve the fabrication of several performance films. The films will enable a practical investigation into the queer body in performance, through technological bodily experiments, utilising the cybernetic phenomenon of ASMR, as well as considering the influence of gaming culture on interactive live art through virtual mediums.
