An Lanntair 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.

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.

Dates of the full Scottish tour:

• Thursday 27 June: The Tower Digital Arts Centre, Helensburgh, Argyll & Bute
• Wednesday 3 July: Glasgow Film Theatre
• Thursday 25 July: Campbeltown Picture House, Argyll & Bute
• Thursday 22 August: Aros Community Cultural Centre, Skye
• Friday 27 September: An Lanntair, Isle of Lewis

Each screening will include a short trailer documenting the project development made by Connolly Clark Film and will be followed by a talk with the curators and participants involved in the Professional Development Programme.
