For Belt and Road, her most ambitious exhibition to date, artist Samara Scott has created a large site specific installation in response to Tramway’s main gallery. Scott’s work is improvised in situ, using materials - cosmetics, cat litter, mustard, toilet paper, milk, soil and cleaning products are just some of the substances that have made up her alchemic collages. Often working on the horizontal plane, Scott submerges these objects creating sculptural friezes in which audiences are confronted with the grit of contemporary culture.
At Tramway Scott suspends these miscellaneous objects to create a translucent expanse which hovers ominously above the viewer. A vast, transparent membrane impregnated with materials sourced from around Glasgow, creating a display that will decay and evolve over time.
