YOUR LEANING NECK – SONG AS PORTRAIT – Steven Anderson
A silent video installation showcasing last November’s event from two perspectives will be shown in the Peacock gallery.
Saturday 18 February – Saturday 10 March
– Live Performance
Starting off at Peacock’s gallery then moving onto the Episcopal Cathedral Church of St Andrew, visitors will be treated to a live re-contextualisation of the performance event created as a site-specific response to the Scottish National Portrait Gallery’s collection of portraits from the Scottish Enlightenment. Within the performance, oral tradition singers are presented alongside contemporary artists who also use their unaccompanied voice as a means of expression.
Friday 24 February | 7 – 9pm | Peacock Visual Arts | FREE
