Meet the Artist: Annemarie Murland20th August, 2016 at 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFreeArtist Annemarie Murland showcases her most recent work that comprises of a video installation and a series of documentary digital photographs of Glasgow’s East End alongside digital portraits of her daughters taken over a twelve-year period.
Migration has been a constant narrative in the McLafferty family’s itinerant history. From their ancestral roots in Ireland to contemporary Scotland, and now in Australia, the complexities of identity formation and the affects of diaspora are the narratives that artist Annemarie Murland has employed to structure the exhibition, Stories of Origin. As a collection, the video installation and series of digital portraits act as an aesthetic archive that reveal and record the artist’s lived and felt experience of cultural diversity and a longing to belong.
The exhibition is developed from a catalogue of documentary photographs of the Calton area of Glasgow , black/white analogue and digital colour portraits of the artist’s daughters taken over a twelve-year period [2001 to 2013]. Through a process of overlay, the images are framed to offer a visual rethinking of who ‘we’ are in relation to the spaces we occupy and as a result stories past and present become fluid.
