LUX Scotland is delighted to announce a new moving image exchange in collaboration with Ajabu Ajabu Audio Visual House, Tanzania, coming this May and June.
The programme is centered on stories from Tanzania and Scotland that reimagine space through excavation of folklore and visual myth making. The featured artists use a variety of approaches rooted in pre modern storytelling such as oral narration, anthropomorphising, improv, allegory, and other gifts of unfettered make-believe for a recreation or reinterpretation of place, history, origin and identity. Taken together the work will seek to visualise what stories, encounters, epiphanies and resolutions reside watchfully in unoccupied spaces. The programme will take place over three weeks, between May and June with a screening and artist conversation each week. It will culminate in the first ever moving image exhibition at the Zanzibar International Film Festival.
The programme includes: Valerie Asiimwe Amani, Arafa Hamadi, Gertrude Malizana, Sekai Machache, Rhona Mühlebach, and Saoirse Wall.
