29th August – 2nd September 2013
A collaborative residency opportunity supported by the Hannah Maclure Centre, arts ‘zine Yuck ‘n Yum and Dundee Contemporary Arts, Proof provided London-based artist Beatrice Haines with access to the work taking place in Abertay’s forensics laboratories. She then created a series of works informed by this access at the Print Studio at Dundee Contemporary Arts.
Proof formed part of the inaugural Print Festival Scotland and proved a fascinating showcase for inter-disciplinary practice, demonstrating the ways in which scientific research can provide inspiration for artists beyond their normal avenues of enquiry. The exhibition included sculpture, etchings, video and digital prints as well as an installation in which the viewer had the chance to play detective, entering a darkened room with a torch and uncovering the “evidence”.
