Scotland + Venice
On 25 July 2019, Campbeltown Picture House will host a special screening of Charlotte Prodger’s new major single channel video work commissioned and promoted by Scotland + Venice for the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
In a first for the Scotland + Venice partners this newly commissioned work will be touring Scotland at the same time as it is being presented to audiences in Venice.
The screening is part of a tour that brings Prodger’s new film to seven cinemas and art centres across Scotland’s west coast, highlands and islands at the same time as it is presented in Venice.
Commissioned by Scotland + Venice, this new work builds upon Prodger’s sustained exploration of subjectivity, self-determination, and queerness. It is the last in a trilogy of videos that began with Stoneymollan Trail (2015) followed by BRIDGIT (2016) for which she was awarded the 2018 Turner Prize. The work has been curated by Linsey Young in partnership with Alexia Holt of Cove Park, Scotland’s international artists’ residency centre, where the work was developed. Through her work Prodger explores the experience of wilderness, the presence and effect of the natural world on memory and emotion and reflects upon ways in which queer bodies might understand and be understood in this space.
