How would your career, social life, family ties, carbon footprint and mental health be affected if you could not leave the city where you live?
Artist Ellie Harrison sparked a fast-and-furious debate about class, capitalism, art, education and much more, when news of her year-long project The Glasgow Effect went viral at the start of 2016.
Named after the term used to describe Glasgow’s mysteriously poor public health and funded to the tune of £15,000 by Creative Scotland, this controversial ‘durational performance’ centred on a simple proposition – that the artist would refuse to travel beyond Glasgow’s city limits, or use any vehicles except her bike, for a whole calendar year.
The book was recently updated and republished to coincide with COP26.
This event will comprise a 20 minute talk by Ellie, a short in conversation with Pier Projects’ team and time for Q&A.
Ellie Harrison is an artist & activist based in Glasgow (UK). Her work takes a variety of forms: from installations and performance / events, to lectures, live broadcasts & political campaigns.
