Passing as a Great Grey Owl

Passing as a Great Grey Owl
dir. Charlotte Prodger/UK/2017/6 min.
Kinoteka, sala 3

Filipka + Dear Madam + Passing as a Great Grey Owl + Last Things

Commissioned for an event in Glasgow hosted by LUX and LUX Scotland, to celebrate the life and work of Ian White (19712013) and to mark the publication of Here Is Information. Mobilise: Selected Writings by Ian White, which collects key critical writings by artist and curator. Found footage of a female biologist mimicking the call of the male Great Grey Owl is counterposed with video of the legs of women as they urinate in various wildernesses. The collision of these activities in landscape points towards an exuberant queer territoriality. This work includes a passage from I am (for The Birds), the final text in the book Here is Information. Mobilise: Selected Writings by Ian White.

Charlotte Prodger is a Glasgow-based artist working with moving image, writing, sculpture and printmaking. She was the winner of the 2018 Turner Prize and represented Scotland at the 2019 Venice Biennale. She received the 2017 Paul Hamlyn Award and the 2014 Margaret Tait Award.
