This exhibition debuts a new body of work by Dundee-based artist Saoirse Amira Anis.

Anis' practice prioritises radical care, informality and empathy. Her work is informed primarily by Black queer literature, her personal ancestry, and her own body as it moves through the world. She considers the ways in which the body holds ancestral and lived memories - particularly in relation to feelings of guilt, shame and inadequacy.

Her current research delves into parallels that can be drawn between Scottish and Moroccan folklore and rituals, particularly looking at how these are rooted in each country's deep connection to water.

About the artist:
Saoirse Amira Anis grew up in the countryside around Lanark and is now based in Dundee. Her work has been exhibited recently in the form of a solo show at Campleline, Dumfries, and as part of the Platform commissions for the 2022 Edinburgh Art Festival. Other recent projects include: Jupiter Rising, 2021; A Lesson in Vanity, David Dale Gallery and Lux Scotland, July 2021; and We Can Still Dance, Jupiter Artland, as part of the Black Lives Matter Mural Trail.

She recently curated Miss(ing) Information at Perth Museum and Art Gallery, an exhibition that features the work of Tayo Adekunle, Nkem Okwechime, Tako Taal and Natasha Ruwona. Since graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, Anis has completed residencies at Cove Park, Argyll and Bute, Hospitalfield in Arbroath, and Collemacchia, with the Museum of Loss and Renewal. She was also a committee member at GENERATORprojects from 2018-2021.

Opening Times:
20 May-06 August 2023.
Tuesday to Sunday 11am-6pm, 8pm on Thursday.
