Future Relics is a collaborative project between visual artists Sandy Sigala, Christine Novosel, and writer/curator Fiona Allan. The project experiments with the way that people organise images or objects in personal and societal contexts. When our collective or individual identities are broken down, what follows? What becomes the focus? What aspirations, fears, memories and self-reflections can we conjure up out of detritus?
Fiona graduated from Glasgow School of Art’s MLitt Curatorial Practice course and brings experience from her involvement with Transmission Gallery and the Exhibitions Department at Glasgow School of Art to her current role at CCA Londonderry.
Lives/works in Glasgow & Ayrshire, Scotland. Community arts coordinator & workshop facilitator.
