(b. 1988, Mexico City, Mexico)
Catalina Barroso-Luque’s current practice focuses on the interrelation between the senses and writing, investigating how the crossovers between language, sculpture and auditory experiences affect our relationships to others. In her work narrative is used as a means of navigating inter and intra-personal relationships through the construction of spaces of imaginary projection and fantasy. How these interactions are mediated and fetishized through technological apparatuses also plays an important role in her work, involving the discrete incorporation of digital media or the allusion to such. Within this the artist has been increasingly concerned with twisting the ways in which technologies are gendered in their design, materiality and use.

Ainslie Roddick is Curator at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow. She managed CCA’s open source programme from 2012-2017. Recent projects include The House that Heals the Soul, a library exhibition space exploring the radical potential of libraries and publishing, and The Sky is Falling, with Black Audio Film Collective, Laura Oldfield Ford, Clara Ianni, Dora Mejía and Carol Rhodes – an exhibition and long-term event program examining the disposition and potential of urban space. Ainslie is editor of 2HB – a journal for artists’ creative writing published by CCA, and is co-founder of Publication Studio Glasgow. She was selected for the most recent Curatorial Programme for Research residency in the Baltic sea region, which took place in October 2017. She co-founded the artist-run space The Duchy with artist Lauren Printy Currie in 2009 and is currently enrolled in the Curatorial / Knowledge Masters in Research programme at Goldsmiths University, London.
