MATTHEW COSSLETT 

Matthew Cosslett (he/him, b. 1995, Ballantrae, Scotland), based in Glasgow, is a multidisciplinary artist who recently completed their MFA at the Glasgow School of Art. Matthew’s practice interrogates Scottish and digital topography using ephemeral archives like YouTube, alongside video, photography, text, and sound to explore how we build meaning in dirt and in data. Viewing our relationship to place and landscape as a locus of an image-individual nexus, Matthew transmutes the network atop imagined places and projects its seemingly divergent realities over loaded landscapes.
