Black Tent Video : We are two visual artists living and working in Scotland, Kyra Clegg and Su Grierson. We have varied independent practices that include video, sound, sculpture and gallery and landscape installations but we also work together on lens based and sound projects that specifically explore Scottish landscape. Our interest in working collaboratively began in 2010 with the cross cultural landscape project ‘Opposing Eden’ with 2 Estonian artists Liina Siib and Laura Kuusk. In our current collaborative project we aim to challenge our own preconceptions of the human and social engagement with landscape as well as those of our eventual viewers.
The outcome will be an eclectic mix of stimulating locations, performative events and thought provoking concepts that underpin our personal engagement with place.
The Black Tent
The Black Tent showed a selection of our independent short works at the Heartwood woodland trail 2011. The BTV forensic black tent can be erected inside or out to provide a unique dark screening room.
