Echo is an evening of multidisciplinary presentations set within Alberta Whittle’s exhibition How Flexible Can We Make the Mouth.
A longstanding part of the exhibition programme at DCA, Echo is designed to throw new light on the works displayed in our galleries by inviting other artistic voices into the building to respond to each show.
As part of this instalment, we have invited Dundee-based artist Saoirse Anis to respond to Whittle’s work. Anis’ creative process is a celebration of the holistic and constantly changing nature of existence, and she takes delight in being able to explore fascinating and beautiful relationships between materials and memories. Recently, she has become increasingly interested in her personal ancestry, investigating the ways in which she is responsible for the continuation of her own cultural heritage.
In advance of this response, there will be opportunities for other voices to present ideas. In past events, participants have presented a wide variety of new and existing works that they have made in response to, or think is relevant to, the work/themes in our exhibitions. These have included drawings, sculptures, short films, poetry, text readings, dance, music, and performance. If you would like to share your creative response to the work on show, please submit a short proposal (no more than 300 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Mon 11 November 2019.
