Alan Holligan MFA BA(Hons): Lecturer
Since 1996 I have been involved predominantly in collaborative practice within the Artist Groups, Virus and latterly Meantime PTA.
Virus formed in 1996 as a discussion-based ideas forum with 6 members. Early work was mostly written, video and interventionist. Invitations followed to participate as a group in international projects and provided the opportunity to collectively produce work, initially object-based, mostly installation with some time-based as well as slide / artists book works.
Meantime PTA is a recently established collaborative group formed after a number of conversations concerning the problems arising from making work within the restrictions (time, fiscal etc) of day-to-day living.
My solo practice shifts variously between concerns around; accuracy, mimicry, material, scale, location, sentiment, judgment, context, action, re-action, reduction and redaction.
Jennie Temple MFA BA(Hons): Lecturer
My solo practice has predominantly reflected my long-standing interest in architecture, and more specifically, the function of architecture and architectural features in both private and social spaces. My practice has shifted between several methods of production from small 2 dimensional works through to large-scale installations.
More recently collaborative projects have been at the forefront of my practice. I am a founding member of the artist collective Meantime and founder of Project !!Wakaka!.
Project !!Wakaka! recently took part in the Edinburgh Annuale.
Colette Woods BA(Hons), PGCE: Lecturer
After graduating in Painting from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art I undertook an International Post Graduate scholarship at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest for 2 years. Since then my practice as an artist has given me opportunities to travel and exhibit my solo and collaborative work within the Artist Groups, Virus and currently Meantime PTAinternationally.
Prior to joining the Fine Art team at Edinburgh’s Telford College I worked as a community artist, taught in a number of Private and State Secondary Schools and have given lectures at a number of Art Institutions in Scotland and Europe including; Edinburgh College of Art, Art Academy: Stuttgart and Hungarian University of Fine Arts, Budapest.
