Sight / Site is an exhibition of new works by year 2 participants of the HND Contemporary Art course at Edinburgh’s Telford College. The exhibition deals with the dual themes of visual impairment & location in response to the current exhibition at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Edinburgh by artist Rosita MacKenzies; who is herself blind. The work has not been developed specifically for those with visual impairment but rather deals with the individual concerns of the artists. Taking the Royal Botanical Gardens as their source / site of research the work explores and attempts to tackle some of the apparent contradictions between visual art and visual impairment.
Sight / Site is open on Wednesday 4th – Friday 6th February from 10am – 5:30pm
This event will coincide with the opening of the Richard Demarco Archive also at Edinburgh’s Telford College.
