Alexander & Susan Maris
Glasgow-based Alexander & Susan Maris studied at Glasgow School of Art (1977-81) and the Royal College of Art (1985-87). They describe themselves as ‘Post-Urban’ artists, and have been collaborating as such since 1990, and in the tradition of Joseph Beuys, view their entire lives as a continuous work of art. They are currently working on a digitally archived reforestation project for Rannoch Moor, which anticipates the eventual reintroduction of the European Wolf, Lynx and Black Bear into the Scottish Highlands.
Recent exhibitions include: The Pursuit of Fidelity (a retrospective), Stills, Edinburgh (2010); There is no road (the road is made by walking) curated by Steven Bode, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, Gijon, Spain (2009); Sometimes Making Something Leads to Nothing, Ingleby Gallery, Edinburgh (2009); Waterlog, Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery (2006), and RISK at CCA, Glasgow (2005).
