Current exhibitor interview: Siân Macfarlane
Finishing off our series of interviews with the current artists in the exhibition Into View, we now get to find out more about Siân Macfarlane’s moving image photography project We will meet sooner than two mountains…
Working with video, Siân Macfarlane traces paths through archival materials, unearthing parallels, and using instances of repetition or synchronicity to dictate direction. From the starting point of a series of annotated photographs from 1946, she retraced the journey dictated by these photographs, uncovering a history of landscape painting based around a church in North Wales, and discovering an archive of letters between a Victorian artist, Lily Whaite, and her father, and ephemera; gallery listings, pamphlets, dried flowers. A car crash that had happened when the artist was a child was revealed to have occurred in this location. We will meet sooner than two mountains explores a re-encounter with a place where people and their experiences exist as latency, and a search to reveal them.
The exhibition is on until 16 May 2014. Free admission.
