Dalziel + Scullion
Scottish artists Matthew Dalziel and Louise Scullion began their collaboration in 1993 and since then, have produced a significant body of work that has been widely shown nationally and increasingly, internationally.
Dalziel + Scullion are interested in observing the more-than-human life forms we live amongst – this is strongly influenced by their location in Scotland, whose territory they have explored through bird song, bog plains, aquatic margins and intensive farming. Their work attempts to re-immerse human experience in the depth of a living world. Working in photography, video, sound and sculpture, their work encourages us to look anew at our habitat, questioning what significance our estrangement from nature will have on our future survival.
Selected UK exhibitions include the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh; Arnolfini, Bristol; Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Manchester Art Gallery; Milton Keynes Gallery; Scottish Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh; Centre of Contemporary Art, Glasgow; Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow and the National Museum of Photography, Film and Television, Bradford.
