Outside Edge is the culmination of a collaboration between two Chinese and two British artists that began with a residency in Carsaig, a remote coastal edge of the island of Mull, in 2019.

 

Although initially forced to abandon the next stage of the project (a residency and exhibition in China) because of Covid-19, the four artists ‘regrouped’ through a virtual residency in 2021, sharing studio time daily for a week.

 

This exhibition present the outcomes of this cross-cultural collaboration, featuring drawings, ink paintings, installation, calligraphy and film. 

 

The residency was supported by the RSA William Gillies Travel Award.
