A Dance of Ownership, A Song in Hand

Gill Clarke and Lucy Skaer investigated ways to unbalance normal conditions and record different realities. Travelling to the now uninhabited island of St Kilda and to Mount Stuart, the ancestral home of St Kilda’s former owner (the Fifth Marquess of Bute), Clarke and Skaer double exposed film, making visible the historic link between the two places. The resulting superimposed images, and live elements of the work, explore conflicting senses of gravity and presence through destabilised image and movement.
