Rooted in ideas of silt, slop and snap, backwash is an exhibition by Glasgow-based artist Camara Taylor, and forms part of Collective’s Satellites Programme.
Central to backwash is Camara’s ongoing conversation with Scottish waterways and a collection of considerable addresses, memorials, petitions, answers, proclamations, declarations, letters and other public papers spanning multiple centuries.
Through the exhibition, Camara offers new video and mixed-media work recomposed from the sighs and groans of a sinking kingdom; a short-lived Company; several ports and a pistole.
Satellites is Collective’s development programme for creative practitioners based in Scotland. The 2021 participants are: Stephanie Black-Daniels, Mina Heydari-Waite, Katherine Ka Yi Liu 廖加怡, Joey Simons and Camara Taylor.
Satellites Programme is supported by Baillie Gifford.
backwash by Camara Taylor is supported by The Elephant Trust.
