Embassy Gallery are delighted to present 'Glassmount', a solo presentation of new work by moving image artist Daniel Cook.

Glassmount House stands stoically on an island of green, isolated by sprawling fields. Its lavish rooms and idyllic walled gardens make it the perfect retreat. This new work from Daniel Cook presents filmed site-responsive performances creating a chaotic personification of the house itself. Four narrative threads perpetuate each other as the camera roams freely around the grounds.

The work includes performances from Stasis, sound and music produced by Fergus Cook, co-direction Callum Russell and produced by Marcy Paterson.

Cook is a Scottish artist, filming by immersing himself in the lives of his subjects; the work is both performative and based in reality. Recently, his debut film The King and I has been screened at various festivals and exhibitions. It won the 2017 John Watson Prize (Scottish National Gallery 2017), The Helen A. Bequest Award (Edinburgh University 2017), The Talbot Rice Acquisitions Award (Edinburgh University 2017) and Award of Recognition: Documentary Short (Indie Fest Film Awards, California 2017) and most recently the Hilton Earl Memorial Award (Glasgow short film festival 2018).
