Lindsay Perth is an Edinburgh-based Artist and Photographer. Canadian born, Lindsay has lived in Scotland since 1986. She has exhibited and curated artwork nationally and internationally and worked with arts organisations across Scotland for 18 years as a socially-engaged artist.
“My arts practice is interested in the tensions from moving boundaries and situations of change. My media is varied and interdisciplinary and includes moving image, socially-engaged art, performance, text-based work and installation.”
In 2011-13 Perth was Visual Artist in Residence at NHS Forth Valley until and produced artworks such as ‘A Sense of Someplace’ and film ‘One Hundred Blinks‘. Recent projects include Stirling Community Hospital Art Commission and Ethel Maude.
Hans and Lindsay’s residencies are part of the NWEPC development and hosted by North Edinburgh Arts. Arcadeum was based in the ‘satellite’ space in the shopping centre next to NEA. This area is now in flux as part of the regeneration, so currently Arcadeum ‘floats’.
