Schrag, A. (2021) PANDEMIC: Art making in lockdown [Practice Research]. Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh.
During the Covid-19 lockdown, I was awarded the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s PANDEMIC award which aimed to support artistic practice in these unparalleled times. As my practice is concerned with physical, participatory methodologies, I aimed to explore how my practice was impacted by the Covid-19 restrictions, and took two parallel approaches.The first explored how collective and collaborative ways of creation could be supported when ‘being together’ was impossible. The second looked how ‘embodied cognition’ could be used express the complex psychological changes that were occurring to myself and others in the face of isolation and lockdown.
