Description

An interactive video installation, projected across four screens. With accompanying soundscape, striking imagery and choreography, Family Portrait captures Artistic Director, Natasha Gilmore, and her children in an intimate portrayal of family life. Taking you on a geographical and emotional journey through Scottish landscapes, it celebrates getting out into nature. With space to roam, the children encounter rabbit skulls, converse with spiders and make war paint with berries. With humour and candour, the work shares an honest depiction of what family really is with its relentless, glorious chaos, responsibility, joy, intimacy and love. Each screening for one extended household.
