For the final Spin event of 2016, we will be heading to the Number Shop, an artist-run studio and gallery space founded in 2014. We will be getting a sneak preview of Eden Hawkins’ photography exhibition which officially opens the day after our visit. Eden will join us to discuss her work.
Eden studied photography at Edinburgh College of Art (eca), graduating in June 2016. For her degree show she exhibited several large format photographs featuring staged tableaux, lit like commercial images, playfully dramatising everyday objects. These pieces are now part of the University Art Collection since Eden won the eca Degree Show Purchase Prize along with only eight other students. Alongside this, Eden is one of two artists who have been given the Number Shop’s new eca Grad Award, offering her the opportunity to produce work especially for the project space at the gallery.
