LUX Scotland is pleased to present She Was a Full Body Speaker by interdisciplinary artist Evan Ifekoya.
Combining found footage from Rewind/Fast Forward with the artists’ personal archive, She Was a Full Body Speaker addresses blackness, sociality and inheritance diffracted through queer nightlife and trauma as an endless repetition.
Following the screening Evan Ifekoya will be in conversation with writer and lecturer Laura Guy.
This event takes place on the closing weekend of Evan Ifekoya’s solo exhibition A Net Made of Individual Knots at Embassy Gallery, Edinburgh.
She Was a Full Body Speaker has been made with a package of support from BFI, no.w.here and Wellcome Trust as part of the Queering love, Queering hormones project and a grant from Heritage Lottery Fund as part of Rewind/Fast Forward. Thank you to Sandi Hughes for providing access to the Rewind/Fast Forward archive and to James Holcombe for the invaluable technical support at no.w.here, Bethnal Green, London.

Tramway’s annual Artist Moving Image Festival, #AMIF2015, examines the role of collective thinking and making. Presenting collaborative forms of production and research, this year’s festival considers what it means for a group to constitute a single body of work and, inversely, how one can speak on behalf of collective thought or action.
As part of #AMIF2015’s special focus on the life and legacy of Stuart Marshall (1949-1993), artist Conal McStravick leads a workshop that invites participants to engage in collaborative work, collective reading, and group annotation. This workshop is limited to 20 places. Booking is essential and can only be made online here.
The festival includes programmes from Conal McStravick with Laura Guy and Ed Webb-Ingall, LUX Critical Forum Glasgow, Norms, tenletters, and Transmission; and includes work by Liam Allan, Catharine Anyango, Dan Auluk, Lorna Boschman, Emma Charles, Karen Cunningham, Lewis Den Hertog, Aideen Doran, Jemma Egan, Richard Fung, Warren Garland, John Greyson, Toby Huddlestone, Stuart Layton, Zoe Leonard and Catherine Saalfield, Maryniak and Mclean, Tom Kalin, Anja Kirchner and David Panos, Pratibha Parmar, Mathew Parkin, Fred Pedersen, Falke Pisano and Luca Frei, Yvonne Rainer, James Richards and Steve Reinke, Marlon Riggs, Emily Roysdon, Helke Sander, Jack Saunders, Susannah Stark, Alexander Storey Gordon, Elisabeth Subrin, Jane Topping, Charlie Tweed, Grace Williams, Laura Yuile, and more; as well as a special two-day focus on the legacy of the artist Stuart Marshall (1949 – 1993).
#AMIF2015 is programmed by collectives and collaborators with an explicit link to Glasgow, and co-organised by Tramway and LUX Scotland, with support from LUX.
