Interview with Hassnat Sikander
This episode of the OUTPUT Gallery podcast is an interview with exhibiting artist Hassnat Sikander, whose work explores the emotional and psychological impacts of cultural enforcements. Hassnat uses text, collage, spoken word and sound to raise awareness about injustices towards women and the mental health issues that are often neglected within traditional communities. Hassnat and host Gabrielle de la Puente discuss Hassnat's practice within the context of her experiences and struggles, her current "punkjabi" focus which combines elements of traditional Punjabi culture with a punk aesthetic, and her experiences as an artist since being one of OUTPUT's first exhibitors when the space opened in 2018.

Interview with Nick Smith
OUTPUT gallery works exclusively with creatives from or based in Merseyside. In the latest episode, we speak to Nick Smith about his beginnings with art education, his practice as a whole, and his current show here at the space. For the exhibition, Smith is exhibiting his 2020 split screen video ‘Where Were You When It Was Shit?’ This is alongside a series of photo works titled 'In The North West It Rains And It Rains And It Rains.'

Interview with Lo Tierney
In this episode of the OUTPUT gallery podcast, we interview freelance illustrator Lo Tierney. For their exhibition at OUTPUT, titled ‘Spectrum,’ the artist presented portraits of autistic people, including a self- portrait of the artist themselves. 'Spectrum’ is an ongoing body of work that aims to bring people together and start a conversation between people with autism and allies. ‘What advice would you give on coping with autism? And what makes a good autism ally?' There is space in the show where visitors can contribute their thoughts, which will be gathered and formulated into illustrations and a zine. / Host: Gabrielle de la Puente Artist: Lo Tierney / loistierney.com / @lotierneyart Contact: outputgallery.com / output@thekazimier.co.uk / @outputgallery Jingle: Michael Lacey / michael-lacey.co.uk

Interview with Joseph Cotgrave
OUTPUT gallery works exclusively with creatives from or based in Merseyside. In this episode, we interview exhibitor Joseph Cotgrave and learn about his relationship with art, the exhibition he did at OUTPUT and the thinking behind it. Earlier this year, Cotgrave transformed the space into a nightclub with sculptures, music, a smoke machine and sticky floors. He wanted to use the exhibition as a way of opening up conversations around the culture of the gay scene, chem sex, and the stigma surrounding HIV. / Host: Gabrielle de la Puente Artist: Joseph Cotgrave / josephcotgrave.co.uk / @josephcotgrave Contact: outputgallery.com / output@thekazimier.co.uk / @outputgallery Jingle: Michael Lacey / michael-lacey.co.uk

OUTPUT gallery - Origin Story
OUTPUT gallery works exclusively with creatives from or based in Merseyside. Established in April 2018, it has worked hard to raise the profile of local artists and provide exhibition opportunities for its scene. In response to lockdown and the potential for less visitors to shows now that the gallery has re-opened, OUTPUT's Gallery Manager Gabrielle de la Puente has began a podcast series to allow audiences to continue engaging with artists and their ideas even if they are not able to make it down to the space. Following on from this initial episode on our Origin Story, the OUTPUT gallery podcast will be a series of interviews with exhibitors on their work, process, exhibition at the gallery, and also their experience of being part of the art scene in Merseyside.  / The Origin Story explains in detail how OUTPUT came to be: from the manager's background in criticism running The White Pube to Invisible Wind Factory's hopes of injecting some lively temporary projects in the Ropewalks area of Liverpool. The podcast covers how the space's local remit was decided, it's funding journey, and what it hopes to be in the future. / Host: Gabrielle de la Puente Contact: outputgallery.com / output@thekazimier.co.uk / @outputgallery Jingle: Michael Lacey / michael-lacey.co.uk
