This residency supports an established visual artist based in Scotland at a key stage in their career. It enables the artist to undertake research, explore new ideas and make significant developments in their practice within the context of Cove Park’s international and cross-disciplinary programme.
Based in Glasgow, Roderick Buchanan has shown widely throughout the UK and internationally. Using film, video, photography and installation, Buchanan’s practice engages with the construction and social expressions of identity and otherness, manifested along the divides of race, territory, community and ideological allegiances.
Following his major exhibition at the Imperial War Museum in London in 2011, Buchanan has continued his work with the Loyalist and Republican parading communities in Glasgow. He is at Cove Park this summer to complete a two-part residency initiated in 2012 and this year he will continue to construct a new project with the working title of ‘1916 ~ 2016’.
