MY BODY IS MY MOST IMMEDIATE TOOL

Annie Crabtree - Nikki Kane

The internal windows of the tenement flat have been transformed into a floor to ceiling screen to play host to video works in progress by Annie Crabtree and Nikki Kane.

Annie Crabtree presents series of video sketches exploring the intersecting relationship between the body, place and cultural conceptions of landscape. This new body of work brings into dialogue human geography and moving image in order to see how theory and practice can coalesce in conversation about place and space. Employing my body as my most immediate tool to explore the landscape of Arbroath through walking, climbing and running, the work that seeks to understand how we conceive, imagine and perform place.

Nikki Kane presents a series of short images and scenes that form part of an ongoing process of making, and that build on her work on ‘choreographies’ of the everyday, contemporary labour, and public space. These new vignettes focus on the rhythms, patterns and shapes of the body itself as it occupies or moves through space, performing the everyday. The shots highlight the details of often-overlooked gestures and unremarkable movements of the body, drawing attention to these as sites for consideration or interest.  

 

The exhibition is located on the second floor of the building and there is no lift. Please press the buzzer for entry. Seating and toilet facilities available.
