Robbie Coleman & Jo Hodges spent one month based at Tarset Village Hall in May 2021. Read more about their joint practice and initial ideas for their residency here:
We currently live and work in remote rural South West Scotland and are fascinated by the multifaceted and changing relationships that exist in this context. As a result, our practice often takes ideas about place as a starting point. We make work that explores the interrelationships between differing ecologies, exploring layers of connection between past, present and possible futures.
We are interested in how people experience art in an out of gallery context and through our work explore and test relationships and strategies that might allow new ideas to resonate in the wider public space. Our work usually involves participation and collaboration whether that be with other artists, scientists, food producers, academics or communities.
We have no favoured methodology or medium and allow the site and situation to guide our working processes. Our projects can range in scale and ambition from creating sites for conversation to large scale public events.
