Andrew Black

What’s your background?

I was born in 1990 in the North of England and moved to Glasgow in 2009.

What are your artistic influences?

Pornography and conversations with friends.

How do you start a new work?

When someone asks me to, or when it can be supported. Then I do what I can with the time and resources available, usually in-between other commitments.

What are you working on right now?

A film made with the support of Market Gallery as part of their Studio Projects residency, recorded partly underwater. Starting with Pamela Colman Smith’s drawing for the Moon tarot card, it includes a village that was flooded during the construction of Thruscross Reservoir, close to where I grew up, and a moment of gay sex in a ruined village on an isolated peninsula on Scotland’s West coast.
