Julia Margaret Cameron Award for Women Photographers 2018 'WOMEN SEEN BY WOMEN'
Valid Foto Gallery Barcelona April 10-28, 2018
Scottish Identity, Gallery 23 Edinburgh
“Where is the coward that would not dare to fight for such a land as Scotland,” Sir Walter Scott asked in the 18th Century. Yet, what does it mean to be Scottish in 2017? Does one have to be born in Scotland to feel Scottish? In a particularly tense period following Brexit, the possibility of another independence referendum, and aftershocks from the United States election, Scottish Identity asks artists to examine their own views of Scotland and her people. The artists presented here have presented a body of work that exposes the nuanced dimensions of this unique country. Works have engaged social issues, the future of the natural landscape, historic traditions, personal experience, notions of ancestry, patriotism and politics.
Significantly, of the 25% of Scotland’s residents who were born elsewhere, minority groups are far more likely to claim Scottish identity in Scotland than those who claim an English identity in England. What is it about Scotland that makes her residents so passionate about land and country? Gallery 23 seeks to contribute to the dialogue of what Scotland looks like on the brink of such exceptional national and global change.
