We are delighted to announce that the seventh recipient of the SLG Post-Graduate Residency is free.yard, an ongoing situational project initiated by London-born artist and composer Adam Farah. free.yard will begin their 6 month residency in the SLG’s Outset Artists’ Flat this November and will exhibit in the first floor galleries in spring 2018. This year the residency is also generously supported by Black Dog Publishing, enabling the recipient to produce a publication.
Fluctuating between and within research, artistic and curatorial practices free.yard works across drawing, sound, performative/gestural moments and promiscuous research methodologies. During the residency, they will continue to develop various strands of a versatile mode of research coined ‘ends theory’, as well as new sonic compositional, drawing and sculptural works.
In 2017 free.yard took part in the Holding Space Artists Associates Programme at The Showroom, London after graduating from Camberwell College of Arts in 2014 with a BA in Drawing. Since then their work has been included in several group exhibitions including; Mothership at Exo Exo, Paris; Kind of Flossy curated by C.R.E.A.M at Assembly Point, London; The Shift at Flat Time House, London; I Would’ve Done Everything For You / Gimme More! at The Plug, London and Asymmetric Grief at Arcadia Missa, London. free.yard also contributed to the publication Dream Babes: Speculative Futures Zine edited by Victoria Sin.
