‘Always Here‘ by Erika Juniper is our artwork of the week. It is a four-minute video, filmed in the Tycanol Woods, while the artist was on residency. The solo material was created through a process of listening and responding to the self, the wild and the music. Project Ability is currently showing Erika’s solo, along with three other artists’, until November 26. Each is accompanied by photographs and its own soundtrack, available through headphones.
Erika Juniper, along with fellow artist Andrew Kelly, both came to Glasgow to help lead workshops in our studios at Trongate 103. They, along with Arty Party‘s Ray Jacobs and inclusive movement practitioner Rachel Ligget, worked with Project Ability artists and dancers from Indepen-dance, to create their own personal ‘solos’.
‘Four Solos in the Wild‘ features moving imagery and photography. Additionally, there is also a slide show of images documenting the workshops that took place at Project Ability and Trongate 103, in the week before the exhibition.
Juniper’s solo is a beautiful look into one person’s relationship with the wild. It is a moving short film, a dance and a story. “Always Here’ can be seen until 26 November.
