The Northern Scot,  Artist's life-size bunker on display at Glenfiddich Distillery, December 2021

BBC News, Doomsday bunker wins young artist prize, February 2020. 


Edinburgh Evening News, Turning Brexit into art wins Gabrielle top prize [print version only], February 2020.

'Professor Juan Cruz, ECA Principal commented: ... "Gabrielle's work very ably demonstrates the capacity of contemporary art to address issues of enormous significance, as well as peoples' most pressing concerns, with mordant wit. Her work gets under the skin of these issues and exposes us to our own equally problematic reactions." ' 

The Scotsman, Safe Haven: Artist wins £10,000 prize as Brexit fears inspire creation of doomsday bunker [print version only], February 2020.

The Sheffield Telegraph, Sheffield-born artist Gabrielle Gillott's Brexit-inspired work wins major award, February 2020.


'Andy Fairgrieve, co-ordinator of the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence programme, said: ... "“Gabrielle creates environments reminiscent of Cold War era bunkers, reimagined through an aesthetic of 3D computer modelling, perfectly encapsulating a zeitgeist of uncertain times.” '

The Skinny, Personal is Political: RSA New Contemporaries 2020,  February 2020.

'In Gabrielle Gillott’s exhibition, she draws on his [sic.] research in stockpiling forums to create a series of sculptures of sparse interiors in which the forms of tins and dry goods spill out from unexpected places. For Gillott, the hoarding is one of the most distinctive physical expressions of general social insecurity surrounding Brexit.'

The New York Times, At Edinburgh Festivals, Climate Awareness Comes at a Cost, August 2019.

'The exhibition includes Gabrielle Gillott’s “Safe Haven,” a droll satirical installation about hoarding for the apocalypse'

The List, Rebels With a Cause, August 2019. 

The National, New residency's mission is matter of life and death, July 2019.

'She’s commenting on the logic, the ethics behind that apocalyptic standpoint. Who knows what’s going to happen in 80 years’ time? We don’t know how bad it’s going to be. But some people think it will be fine if they just stock up, that they can weather this storm.'

a-n, Degree Shows 2019: paranoia-inducing installation, non-binary paintings, and good things in small packages, June 2019.

'Named for the soothing, saccharine shade of lilac paint used throughout, the winding corridors, bare lightbulbs and hollow stacks of tin cans inside the installation replace comfort with paranoia.'
