Artists

Sarah Calmus graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone with a BA in Art, Philosophy and Contemporary Practices in 2014, and soon after, relocated from Dundee to Edinburgh where she has worked across the arts in a wide range of professional and voluntary capacities. Sarah became the President of Visual Arts Scotland in March 2020, overseeing the exhibitions, events and support for the 700+ members and creative community. Immersive, participatory and environmental provocations form the basis of Sarah’s practice which ranges from fixed large-scale light installations to month-long nomadic social interventions. She is interested in psychological and philosophical narrative, and her explorative practice is intentionally interactive, interdisciplinary and participatory.

Building a tryptic of films as a specially created commission for the exhibition, Sarah will be responding to the themes of renewable energy and playfully experimenting with information extracted from renewable energy data sets. Focusing on conversion and translation of data from numbers to colour, using a process developed on a residency at Cove Park in 2019, Sarah will communicate something of the essence of the data through three meaningful, emotive short films.
