The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here?
April 16, 2010 - May 29, 2010
The Long Loch: How Do We Go On From Here? os a discursive exhibition project featuring work by Kate Davis and Faith Wilding, commissioned by CCA for Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2010.
The project explores convergences within the artists’ seperate practices that expand, illuminate and learn from feminist concerns and legacies in ways relevant and pertinent to ‘a present’ of Glasgow 2010, while aware of the need to think ahead.
It will encompass uinstallations, a day-long symposium titled How We Go On Now, an archive room of ‘peculiar resources’ and a reading room collaboration with Glasgow Women’s Library. The reading room will include texts, films, visual and audio works from the Read Out! Read In! Feminist Lines of Fight in Art and Poltics online resource, which continues to act as a catalyst for a network of reading group discussions.
With the working title of, What has the that got to do with a room of one’s own? Kate Davis is developiong a series of projections and works on paper as well as her first substantial film work. Exploring the social and political complexities Virginia Woolf’s question still poses today, Davis is using an examination of the qualities of film (both digital and 16mm) to discuss the construction and perception of maternal and matriarchal structures.
Faith Wilding is interested in the many overlaps between Virginia Woolf and Emma Goldmann, but also in the great differences between them; differences of lives, strategies and mediums for work. Focusing on a lived feminist aesthetics of poilitics, the powerful heritage of which has inspired and guided Wilding for more than 40 years, she has started working on series of small watercolours and drawings that are temporarily entiitled The tears/tears of Virginia and Emma. She is particularly interested in the fact taht Woolf’s Goldman’s life-spans closely coincided and yet thety often aren’t considered as contemporaneous with each other.
