3 - 8 October 2015 Central to the exhibition is Lin Li’s new film Above Us the Sky, which had two successful screenings in Glasgow in August. The film is about Brian Quail, a retired teacher who has campaigned for nuclear disarmament for decades. It is a portrait of Brian around his identity as a peace activist, through extracts of his conversations with Lin, footage of his direct action and of his home.
During the exhibition, the film will be shown on a TV monitor in an intimate space appropriate to the work’s contemplative pace.
The exhibition will also include artworks by Lin which have been inspired by the film and some of her reflection during the filmmaking process.
This project is funded by Creative Scotland through the Open Project Funding.
