Where I Am: Luke Fowler, Depositions
Fri 24 Apr 2015 / 7.30–9pm
Depositions explores the role of the Highland traveller in Gaelic Highland history and culture by combining archival footage from the Isle of Barra, new footage and interviews. The film-work was originally commissioned as part of Artists and Archives: Artists’ Moving Image at the BBC, a residency programme based at BBC Scotland.
Luke Fowler’s films dwell on potentiality: what might be, what might have been, what might still be if the world were to turn in a different direction? But film time runs in many directions, as do arguments. Film made only recently can be easily confused with the archival vintage of washed-out or saturated tones and blurred edges. – David Toop, 2014
