Craig McCorquodale

Craig McCorquodale is a Glasgow-based live artist, who understands performance as a complex scenography of living and being alive.

His performance work is varied but form and content are often found through unlikely collaborators: people, places and things that offer us visceral statements of collective experience. In this way, Craig is ambitiously finding new ways of working with non-professional performers, challenging the presumed aesthetics of this work and exploiting the live moment as a social sculpture built on complexity, risk and greater human empathy.

With the support of the Live Work Fund, Craig will undertake a yearlong collaboration with construction workers and other artists to build new ways of working in live performance. Construction sites are unfinished landscapes, where we see beyond the surface, which is akin to the purpose of performance. This open-ended process will explore happenings between artist and other, the material processes of construction and the possibilities of different live arenas.
