Commenting on her new project which features a combination of photography, video and sound installations as well as interactive elements across previously undiscovered art display areas in Perth Concert Hall’s Threshold artspace Su said,

Using combinations of video, sound and image I create installations that draw attention to, question, visually stimulate and propose the issues of my attention.

My hope is that through vision the work can stimulate thought and perhaps new understanding.

The Sunday Brunch opening is free and all are welcome but are asked to email numbers to i.nedkova@horsecross.co.uk

As well as selected earlier artworks which engage with contemporary landscape in non-traditional ways, Intersections features a newly commissioned work for the 22 screen Threshold wave. This new work follows from a 10-week residency in Fukushima Japan where she was able to visit the nuclear, earthquake and tsunami disaster areas and meet with the still dispossessed refugees as well as experience the beautiful snowy mountains of the Province (documentation on ecoartscotland here).

The accompanying book Intersections details Su Grierson’s land related art projects over the last 17 years and unusually includes invited texts from other professionals working in the rural arena, including John Brennan head of the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Edinburgh, Paul Kingsnorth writer and poet, Sascha Grierson organic farmer, Tristan Gooley writer, navigator and explorer and Jan Van Boeckel anthropologist, filmmaker and educator.

Rather than following the more usual pattern of using the book to position her work within the arena of contemporary art, Su has chosen to take the opportunity to relate it to the work of other professionals working in the rural environment.
