4by8 G A L L E R Y presents TABLETOP ART // MAX SCRATCHMANN
JAN 13th - 19th
Max Scratchmann is an illustrator, writer and performer.
He was recently a Take-Away Poet at Portobello Library; an Inky Fingers’ Poet on a Bus on the Lothian Buses’ Edinburgh Tour; and he has just won Third Place for his poem, Snow Globes, in the Dear Scotland 2013 Writing Contest this winter.
His many books include The Last Burrah Sahibs and Scotland for Beginners, which are autobiographical tales of his childhood in colonial India; and his earlier account of downshifting to the isles, Chucking It All, became unintentionally controversial in 2009 when the Lib-Dem MP for Orkney tried to have it banned. The book prevailed, however, despite the defection of its original publisher, and went on to become a Kindle bestseller.

JAN 6 - 12th
Would you like to get entangled in my quest to understand the quantum world? Let me introduce myself, I’m an artist and theatre maker working in street arts, circus, physical theatre, large scale outdoor events, film, installations and visual art.
I am currently participating in a project called Fieldwork, in which artists and scientists come together in an enquiry about process and practice. I have been partnered with a particle physicist!
On the table tops of the Forest I am sharing some creative responses, part of processing my explorations into the world of quantum mechanics, and while understanding the tiniest, most elementary building blocks of matter I am learning about my practice.
May they provoke thoughts, pictures, ideas that you can in turn share with me. I look forward to hearing from you,
