Annual exhibition of newly graduated Scottish artists in Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh, April – May 2013
Four video installations across two galleries using a combination of recorded footage and live-feed video.
In one room three video works stood in a cluster: Face, Eye, and Step. The fourth work Hole was installed in the adjacent room beneath/through the floorboards. The short video loop had been recorded within the RSA in one of the gallery spaces downstairs.
“Emma Reid is altogether more intimate, with tiny spy-holes in a box, which replay various things including the image of nearby feet. One of her spy-holes is also set, inconspicuously, into the floor of the next gallery.”Duncan MacMillan, The Scotsman, Arts review: RSA New Contemporaries, Edinburgh, April 18th 2013
