Guy Bigland – The Written Word


Hastings Independent Newspaper

Throughout the Festival FREE

Guy Bigland has been commissioned to produce a new piece of work which will be printed in the pages of the Hastings Independent throughout the festival.

Bigland sees words as raw material to be collected and organised by the mechanics of rule-based systems. He explores language as a site of both potential and limitation. His work establishes parameters that combine logic and precision with arbitrariness and playfulness.

Since completing his BA & MFA at Bath Spa University, recent group exhibitions include By the Rules, Salisbury Art Centre (2015); Complicity: Artifice & Illusion; Collyer Bristow, London (2016); The Order of Things, The Wilson, Cheltenham (2017).

He has work in public and private collections in the UK and the USA.
