Upcoming Event

Saoirse Amira Anis

Co-programmed by LUX Scotland and David Dale Gallery

JULY 2021

Programmed by Saoirse Amira Anis

SAOIRSE AMIRA ANIS is an artist based in Dundee. She uses her art practice to investigate personal therapeutic processes and how this relates to the ways we share our vulnerabilities with each other. She is interested in the potential that lies in caring for ourselves and others, and the extent to which this nurturing can benefit us both personally and politically. This is informed by the calls for radical community-based approaches to governance and care that run through most queer Black feminist thought. Dancing is often a staple of her practice as an expression of joy, self-care, and love.

David Dale Gallery and LUX Scotland are excited to present a series of three monthly online screenings in collaboration with Natasha Ruwona, Siri Black and Saoirse Amira Anis, three Scotland-based artists working with moving image. From June to August, a different artist each month will present a recent moving image work of their own alongside a film that they have selected from the LUX collection. The film programmes will be hosted on David Dale Gallery’s website and will be available to watch for free for the duration of each month. In addition, each artist will present a contextual event to explore themes within their practice.

This is the second screening programme organised by David Dale Gallery and LUX Scotland. The first iteration was produced in collaboration with Hannah James, Sulaïman Majali, Alexander Storey-Gordon and Winnie Herbstein in 2019–  you can see more about this project here.
