Directors

Nikki Kane

Nikki Kane is an artist and curator whose practice examines experiences of space, place, societal structures, and the everyday. Much of her work centres on a ‘choreographic’ perspective, using this as a way to highlight, disrupt or amplify the rhythms, patterns and shapes of our environments.

Nikki studied History of Art at the University of Glasgow and later completed the Masters of Research in Creative Practices at Glasgow School of Art in 2015. She has presented projects and undertaken residencies in the UK and internationally, and most recently was one of 8 international participants for the 2016/17 CuratorLab programme at Konstfack, Stockholm. She was the Curator in Residence at House for an Art Lover 2017, and was part of the committee at Market Gallery in 2014-16.

Alongside her independent practice she has also worked within public art organisations to develop and deliver large-scale participative projects, notably at NVA where she was part of the team presenting Speed of Light, Ghost Peloton, and Hinterland.

Bobby Sayers

Bobby Sayers is an artist, designer and curator based in Rotterdam. Sayers spent the last 4 years in Glasgow where he exhibited internationally and established residencies and arts projects across Scotland. He is currently studying an MFA at Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam. He has worked for many organisations and galleries across the UK such as The Museum of Everything and You Me Bum Bum Train, and previously co-programmed The Telfer Gallery, Glasgow. He also worked as a designer and website developer for Organise Consulting, a political campaigns organisation based in London. He was commissioned to develop progressive digital manufacturing and education schemes within Libraries in East Dunbartonshire.

Sayers has a focus on open knowledge; exploring themes of beauty and value through the frame of the city, and his artworks often consider how we value ourselves and what authorship we have over our environments.
