Claire Bishop

Royal College of Art

Research Fellowship
2001

Installation Art and Dark/’De-differentiated’ Space

Finishing her PhD research, Claire Bishop looked at the experience of installation art, where the boundaries between the viewer’s body and the surrounding space are temporarily lost. Bishop also contributed to curatorial discussions regarding the Institute’s exhibition programme. Her research is published in Installation Art: A Critical History (Tate, 2005).

Caroline Kirsop

Research Fellowship
2001

Notions of Video and Film as Sculpture

Focusing on the space and physicality of the moving image, Caroline Kirsop considered the sculptural effects of film, and their impact on the experimental design of exhibition spaces.

Suzanne MacLeod

University of Leicester

Research Fellowship
2001

The Historical Development of Open-air Sites for Sculpture Display

Coming from a museum background, Suzanne MacLeod considered the curatorial act of positioning sculpture in a landscape in relation to its histories, traditions and established conventions. Her fellowship directly fed into her teaching in the Museum Studies Department, and into her PhD, which examines the production of spaces for art.

Craig Martin

Surrey Institute of Art and Design, University College

Research Fellowship
2001

Historical Precedents of N55

Craig Martin looked at the work of Robert Smithson as a precedent for the work of Danish art collective N55, given their common interest in Buckminster Fuller. He analysed the use of public (functional/monumental) space, and in order to give him a chance to test his theories, we brought over N55 and rolled their Snail Shell System (a portable living unit) around Leeds city centre.
