Notes

Glasgow artist Kirsty Lackie was born in 1989, and a sense of her fleeting existence looms large in her work. She enjoys using poetry, theatre and film to parse upon the quotidian and conjugate a sense of performance often with surreal interactions. Her recent work depicts somewhat dream-like scenes shot through with a sense of otherness and humour. Her degree in psychology (2011) from the University of Glasgow went some way to helping her understand the mechanics of a mind, and through her degree in Communication Design from the Glasgow School of Art (2018) she’s finding a mode of articulation and expression for these thoughts and observations. Her work often plays with the juxtaposition between our temporary existence and things like, the infrangibility of everyday objects, or the awkwardness in the minutiae of the everyday. But she isn’t morose or downbeat about any of this, instead she likes to set it free with humour and a healthy dose the absurd.
