AboutJoin us after the screening of Under the Skin for Come Along Do, an informal and lively platform for discussion around art and film, led by Gill Nicol. Whether you have something burning to say or would simply like to listen and ponder over the film, just come along - everyone is welcome.
After landing on Earth and slipping into the skin of a human woman, Scarlett Johansson's space creature drives around Scotland seducing young men before one of them gives her pause to look at other aspects of human nature. An abstract, fascinating deconstruction of sexual power with a hypnotic musical score, this is a mesmerizing cinematic experience. Under the Skin is director Jonathan Glazier's third feature film since his award-winning debut Sexy Beast and 2004's critically acclaimed Birth.
Gill Nicol trained as an artist and has worked for numerous organisations including Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, Tate Liverpool and Arnolfini in Bristol. She now runs Lightsgoingon, working to make contemporary at accessible, for as many people as possible, through workshops and events.
Previous Come Along Do discussions have followed McCullin, Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry, The Artist is Present, Shame, Notebooks on Cities and Clothes, The Lebanese Rocket Society and 12 Years a Slave. The diverse films we select span a variety of art-forms and are rich in opportunity for conversation and debate.
