Artists Index: Scott Myles

Scott Myles (Born 1975, Dundee. Lives and works in Glasgow.) Appropriative processes underpin the work of Scott Myles, in particular the degrees of change through the process of repetition of original gesture, attitude, form or positing. Myles’ interest in modes of presentation and display suffuses much of his work and his sculptures, spatial installations and screen prints refer to structures of existing ideas and artworks, particularly within their original context, which he then appropriates either formally or in content. In Reciprocity on Three Planes 2009 the viewer is confronted by a shelf designed solely to display itself, a sculptural ensemble that through the process of doubling and inversion undoes itself. In i! (Eastside Projects) 2009, a new work made specifically for the gallery façade , he has inserted marbled aluminium surfaces into the existing architecture appropriating the existing forms in order to create a new language. Solo exhibitions include We Require a Response, Meyer Riegger, Karlsruhe, Projects in Art and Theory, Cologne and David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles. Group shows include The Associates, DCA, Dundee, Tate Triennial : New British Art, Tate Britain (2006). He is represented by The Modern Institute/Toby Webster Ltd, Glasgow.
