Helen McCrorie is an artist working with video and documentary strategies. If play is neither inside nor outside, where is it? features a new film centred on a child-led outdoor playgroup that meets in the grounds of a former military camp in Scotland. This site, adopted families for imaginative play and experiential learning, also houses a bunker transformed into a data storage unit. The film celebrates innate creativity and explores our understanding of data gathering and learning as interconnected yet diverging processes.
McCrorie's recent exhibitions and screenings include Against the Flow, Perth Playhouse, Platform Festival, Culture PK, 2018; This Is It – Universe at No. 35 Gallery, Bannockburn, 2017; and The Clock in Commune, The Glasite Meeting House, Edinburgh Art Festival, 2016.
