During the AiRborne residency at Art Park, Kate’s project revolves around parkland and our relationship to curated natural spaces within an urban sphere. In viewing public parkland as a symbol of democratic and altruistic intent, themes of utopian design and situationism are explored alongside notions on the sublime and human experiences of nature.
Through investigative processes of drawing, painting and printmaking, alongside a series of drop-in workshops on the theme of fantasy parklands, a body of work in celebration of parks and shared spaces will build up over the residency period. The work will culminate in an exhibition which opens in September.'
ARTincubator - Jordan Munro and Winnie Herbstein
March – October 2017
Jordan graduated from the Sculpture department at Edinburgh College of Art in 2015. Working across various forms including object fabrication, installation and video, his works focuses on materiality, questioning notions of cultural value, relevance and currency within contemporary culture.
Adopting or appropriating the aesthetics and processes from manufactured (mass) production into the creation of often minimal or singular or gestural works, he seeks to understand or interpret the histories of various objects, inviting discussion into their state of manipulated historical significance - allowing viewers to question the way images are broadcast and circulated, and the way they might be understood within contexts such as an archive, museum, or culturally significant space.

Winnie is a graduate from the Environmental Art programme at the Glasgow School of Art.
Working across a range of media including video, text, performance, sculpture and installation, she seeks to investigate the silences and gaps in our ‘official’ narratives.
Solo shows include Before I could speak, X spoke at Outpost Gallery, Norwich (2017) and Soft Shoulder at SWG3 Gallery, Glasgow (2016). Recent group shows include Domestic Observations at Jace Space, LA (2016) and Bit Between Teeth at Sattler and Potszch, Leipzig (2016).
