To coincide with the screening of her work that now (2013), as part of the moving image programme for Ripples on the Pond in Gallery 4, we asked Sarah Forrest to think about a screening event that she could do within the gallery space where the works selected could reflect on her own practice. Forrest worked with Isla Leaver-Yap at LUX Scotland to access the LUX collection and select the works that now make up this exciting screening. GoMA would like to thank the artist and LUX Scotland for their work on this event and are really looking forward to the evening.
Glasgow-based artist Sarah Forrest presents a selection of works about the composition (and decomposition) of the human body in relation to daily lived experience. Including extracts from Jayne Parker’s groundbreaking video Almost Out (1985), Clapping Songs (1981) by Tina Keane and recent work by New York-based artist Moyra Davey, the screening asks the question: what are the legacies that compose us?
that now (2013) was also selected by Modern Edinburgh Film School for A Poetic Measurement, the sister essay to Ripples on the Pond and there will be a new edition on Sarah Forrest’s work available in the gallery soon.
