Future exhibition

Stills Hosts: Beyond The Invisible

1 Apr 2019 - 8 Apr 2019

Renowned photographer Rankin will showcase new work from a unique collaboration with life savings company Standard Life and charity Endometriosis UK.

Beyond The Invisible is a photography and film-led exploration of the debilitating invisible illness, endometriosis, as told through the powerful stories of women who suffer from the condition.

The exhibition, which features portraits of a variety of women, including TV presenter Julia Bradbury and journalist Emma Barnett, uses augmented reality technology to unlock short films that tell the real life stories of adversity, perseverance and hope, behind the imagery.

The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the often unique challenges faced by those living with endometriosis, with around 1.5 million women currently affected in the UK.

Entry to the exhibition is free.

You can donate to Endometriosis UK which provides vital support services, reliable information and a community for those affected by the condition.

“It’s crazy that one in ten women are living with Endometriosis in the UK and yet, so few people know or talk about it. It’s a disease that needs more focus, more funding and more companies like Standard Life to stand up for the millions of women suffering in pain every day in the UK.” - Rankin

Kieran Dodds, Brittonie Fletcher, Alex Hall, Morwenna Kearsley, Mhairi Law and Frances Scott

Preview, 6-8pm, 11 April

AMBIT is an exhibition of work celebrating new and diverse approaches to photographic image making in Scotland. The participating artists demonstrate wide-ranging thematic interests and employ varied techniques and processes, from drone photography to black & white darkroom printing and camera-less photography. The exhibited works have been made in 2018 and 2019 in a broad range of locations, from Glasgow and Edinburgh to Ethiopia, Orkney and the Isle of Lewis. Several of the artists are exhibiting new work or work in progress for the exhibition.

AMBIT is a partnership between Stills and Street Level Photoworks, Glasgow, Scotland’s public venues dedicated to photography. The exhibition will be presented across both venues and is a joint venture aimed at showcasing some of the current tendencies and innovative talent from the photography sector in Scotland.

 


 

About the works included in AMBIT at Stills:

Kieran Dodds is exhibiting photographs from his recent series, Hierotopia, which charts the role of ancient ideas in the protection of rural landscapes in northern Ethiopia; Brittonie Fletcher is presenting a range of new work, made using alternative photographic processes, inspired by her time on an artist’s research residency in Orkney; Alex Hall is showing a selection of work from his series Trauma, medium format photographs taken in a car scrapyard that he has described as, “a Fordist graveyard for an industrial age.” Morwenna Kearsley’s work examines the relationship between process and touch, collection and recollection. For AMBIT she has created large silver gelatin prints in the darkroom at Stills, to be suspended from floor to ceiling in the gallery space; Mhairi Law’s, The Darkest Dawn, consists of five photographs produced to commemorate the centenary of the HMY lolaire disaster that took place on the 1st January 1919 off the coast of the Isle of Lewis; and Frances Scott is exhibiting work informed by the hours she has spent walking the coastline of the Orkney archipelago, photographing, mapping and writing about each section in turn as a way of claiming a new connection with the place where she grew up.
