A Study Room Guide to Remoteness

In 2014 the Live Art Development Agency commissioned writer Tracey Warr to create this Study Room Guide on Remoteness. The Guide complements and contextualizes LADA’s 2014 collaboration with London Fieldworks and Resonance104.4fm on Remote Performances, a series of specially commissioned artist performances and programmes created with local residents and broadcast live from Outlandia, a unique artists' field-station in Glen Nevis, Lochaber, Scotland. Tracey Warr wrote a series of blogposts responding to Remote Perfomances which were published daily throughout the project on LADA's blog

In this Guide Tracey considers wider issues of remoteness and art through a range of artists’ practice with “the odd deviation into literature and theory”.

The Study Room Guide to Remoteness can be read online and downloaded as a pdf or viewed in the Study Room.

Study Room Guides aim to help navigate users through the Live Art Development Agency’s Study Room, a free, open access research facility used by artists, students, curators, academics and other arts professionals. The idea is to enable Study Room users to experience the materials in a new way and highlight materials that they may not have otherwise come across.
