This Autumn, CAMPLE LINE, a contemporary art venue in rural South West Scotland, will present a group exhibition entitled From narrow provinces and host a major new moving image work by Rosalind Nashashibi in collaboration with Edinburgh Art Festival.
From narrow provinces brings together work by artists whose respective bodies of work take distinct approaches to materials, colour, shapes and structure, and operate in compelling junctures between painting and textiles, sculpture and architecture. The international roster of artists includes: Ruth Laskey, Aleana Egan, Rana Begum, Claire Barclay and Alison Turnbull.
In From narrow provinces, each of the artists engages in investigations of material and process, investigations to which combinations of colour and shape are integral, as are the inherent behaviours of the materials and processes they choose (in the ways they sit, fold, fall, bend or weave). They are drawn to practical, everyday materials including threads, pigments, cardboard, MDF, and Jesmonite, and pursue manual processes and methods of construction such as drawing, dyeing, weaving, dipping, printing or casting.
Also presented this autumn is Rosalind Nashashibi’s new two-part film work, commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival; Part One: Where there is a joyous mood, there a comrade will appear to share a glass of wine, 2018/ Part Two: The moon nearly at the full. The team horse goes astray. Shot in Lithuania, London, and Edinburgh, the film features the artist and her children, as well as close friends, which she considers extended family, and their open-ended discussion of space and time travel. Two of Nashashibi’s other film works - Electrical Gaza (2015) and Vivian’s Garden (2017) - will be screened in order to provide a wider context around her practice.
