Captain Lightfoot is the name given to an artist-run collective seeking to create collaborative opportunities for artists who are interested in exploring creative approaches to exhibition making.
Formed in 2012 the core collective (Anneli Holmstrom, Emma Pratt and Kadie Salmon), have worked together in collaboration with various arts organisations, universities and galleries to instigate exhibitions, presentations and workshops. With an aim to share, discuss and instigate new research and knowledge between its invited artistic collaborators and audiences.
Kadie Salmon (b.1986 Scotland) is a visual artist based in London and Scotland. Kadie re-constructs romanticised tableaux through photography, made-models and sculpture. Her own image often haunts her work, evoking enigmatic private fantasies.
Emma Pratt is a visual artist currently living and working in Edinburgh from her studio at Edinburgh Sculpture workshop. Emma has exhibited in the UK, Italy, Germany, Finland, France and Norway. She has her work held in public and private collections in Rome, Milan, Dublin and Edinburgh. Emma mainly works with sculpture; using a variety of medium. Taking an intuitive and self-mutating approach, emerging in the detail are suggestions of limbs, semi-familiar objects and undecipherable artefacts.
