Our new, as-yet-untitled book with Samara Scott explores the research, testing, installation and documentation of Scott's recent projects. Scott is known for her multidisciplinary practice that collects, refigures and emulsifies the everyday detritus of daily life. This has taken the form of subaquatic installations, liquid floor pieces, an elevator, resin-sealed clothing, scanner interventions and more.
A primary subject of this new book is Scott’s immersive installation Belt and Road at Tramway Glasgow in 2018. An artificial translucent ceiling was built into the gallery and layered with thrown-away street detritus and everyday households items, creating a vast, shimmering sea of colour and form, viewable only from below, like stained glass. Also included within are images showing the production of recent projects at Palais de Tokyo, the Sunday Painter, Independent NY, and a collaboration with fashion house Mugler.
Our publication expands beyond a traditional artist book format, to draw the viewer into the chaotic, precarious language of Samara’s practice, through a swirling mix of the artists’ photographs, install images, drone survey images and scanner interventions.
