Morag Myerscough’s residency opened today in her own Pavilion at the Library of Birmingham. She came to speak to us at Birmingham 2022, back when the both the Pavilion and the Library were still under contsruction. For a little introduction to Morag as an artist, and to find out a little more about the Pavilion and her residency, take a peek at this short video from when we had a little chat with her back in July.

Studio Myerscough residence opens today, September 10th in the Library of Birmingham Pavilion, and runs until the end of the week. Join her from 10 – 6pm each day to try your hand at stencilling, other design techniques, and to immerse yourself in her world of bright and bold.

I was inspired by the library of Birmingham to create a character that resembled the likeness of the new structure. I tried to capture the high tech style and merge it with my style of drawing and came up with this imaginary tech-droid that has the shapes and bold colours that build up the libraries form.

gen-y

I’m not a grown-up. I don’t have a house, or a full-time 9-5. I don’t even drink tea of coffee. In my driving lesson this morning, on my fourth attempt to perform a passable parallel park, I distinctly heard myself whine ‘I’m BORED!’, whilst clumsily ramming the vehicle into reverse and speeding it inaccurately towards the curb. It was the exact tone I used when I was fifteen, faced with a page of algebraic equations and a very slow-ticking clock. Six years on, and it still doesn’t take much to metaphorically sit me right back down in one of those red plastic chairs at the back of my GCSE maths classroom.

Today was laid back and chilled atmosphere as we used one of the coolest media rooms in BMC (Birmingham Metropolitan College). Our fingers were typing away on the Mac computers through lot’s of edited articles for this discovery season brochure. We managed to complete most of the drafts that was ready to be sent to our editor Dan, and printed for approval by Kerry.

It was also pleasing to see our creative team also getting their hands on some of the articles and grabbing what-ever was left to do. So everyone had steam through fingers, worked as a team and kept busy. We also had our own interviews with Siobhan explaining our roles within the project and what our favorite books are.

As we draw to the end of the week our targets to complete our drafts are on schedule, it’s just a case of re-editing ,planning and working with the creative team on their tasks for next week.
