A film that promises to take viewers on an emotional journey will be shown at An Lanntair this month.
SaF05, the last in a trilogy of films from Charlotte Prodger, will be shown on Friday 27 September at 6:30pm.
The screening will be accompanied by a talk from Birmingham based curator, Seán Elder, who will introduce the new single-channel video by the 2018 Turner Prize-winning artists.
SaF05, named after a maned lioness that figures in the work as a cipher for queer attachment and desire, was commissioned by the Scotland + Venice partnership for the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia where it is currently screening until the end of November. The work was curated by Linsey Young in partnership with Cove Park, Argyll and Bute, where Prodger developed her first ideas for the commission.
This autobiographical cycle traces the accumulation of affinities, desires and losses that form a self as it moves forward in time.
Head of Visual Arts & Literature at An Lanntair, Roddy Murray, said: "It’s exciting to be linked simultaneously in time to Scotland + Venice via art and technology.
"Charlotte Prodger's film is very personal and a response to issues of identity and gender-fluidity.
"I am delighted we have the opportunity to screen the film at An Lanntair and share this work with our audiences.”
The screening will also include a short trailer documenting the project development made by Martin Clark which will be introduced by Amanda Catto, Chair of the Scotland + Venice partnership and Head of Visual Arts at Creative Scotland.
