Saturday 10 September, 6:30-8pm
You are invited to join us for the première of Glaswegian artist Luke Fowler’s short feature film Being in a Place – A Portrait of Margaret Tait, featuring the work of filmmaker-poet, the late Margaret Tait. Drawing on a wealth of unseen archival material and unpublished notebooks, the film weaves a complex and personal portrait of Margaret’s life, from the perspective of a fellow artist sensitive to the potential Margaret envisaged for film as a poetic medium.
The opening will run from 6:30-8pm with a special in conversation between Void Director Mary Cremin and artist Luke Fowler at 5:30pm on the same evening. This event is free to the public but booking is advised – you can register to attend here.
Refreshments will be provided – with drinks sponsored by Northbound Brewery.
