As the first phase of the Arts in Moray’s work came to an end, the artists of the AIM collective came together at the end of September to present a showcase of their work and the process behind it.

We asked Laura Johnston-Scott, AIM Collective Co-ordinator, to reflect on how it went.

This showcase, located in the gallery space at Moray School of Art in Elgin, was open to the public from Tuesday 20th September to Friday 23rd September. It featured work from the artists in residence: Mary Bourne, Lynda Buchan, Fleur Darkin, Salma Faraji, Mike Inglis, Caroline Inckle, Simone Kenyon, Lise Olsen and Gail Sneddon.

The centre of the showcase featured three 6 minute films exploring three key themes: artist approach & development, community interaction and residency outcomes. This allowed us to give context to the multi-layered richness of the collective; the work of each artist was displayed on the walls around the gallery space.
