Joint Creative Lab Residency at CCA Glasgow With Siân Robinson Davies (2011)
Emma Leach and Siân Robinson Davies were artists-in-residence at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow from 1 – 30 September 2011. During their stay they were exploring conflict and how it is reported, described and mediated, with particular focus on Scottish history, current debates around devolution and the Celtic and Rangers football team rivalry as symbols of entrenched conflict.
Emma collaborated with Gemma Sharpe, inviting the following people to present performances or events at the Whitstable Biennale:
Ruth Beale & Karen Mirza | Richard Birkett | Rebecca Bligh | Angus H Braithwaite | Lottie Child | Lucienne Cole | Augusto Corrieri | Brian Dillon | Ian Giles | Emma Hart | Richard Layzell | Annika Ström
As part of their three day residency at KUBE Gallery, Emma & Natasha recruited reporters locally, assigning them topics for quick response articles that connected with their experiences of Poole. The resulting ‘newspaper’ draws together different voices, and explores what it means to tell a story.
This ongoing project asks awkward questions about arts internships, and moves towards some constructive answers. The first action was presented at Royal College of Art; the second action was presented at Queen Mary, University of London as part of Labour Practices, an event organised by the Live Art Development Agency.
Emma invited the following artists to present work at the Whitstable Biennale:
Mark Butcher | Robin Deacon | Siân Robinson Davies | Beatty Hallas | Roz Hilton | Sandra Pearson | Natasha Vicars | Chris Yates
Emma and Bram undertook identical journeys on the same day, both taking a taxi three miles south and walking back home. Emma started her journey in east London, Bram started his in Totnes. On arriving home they both wrote everything they could remember from their respective walks.
During Erika & Juan’s residency at Gasworks, they invited Emma to join them for informal appearances in and around a local estate. Emma was asked to write a script with her brother Tim, which was then performed by Tim at Kennington Park Centre.
