11 May - 24 November 2019
On behalf of the Scotland + Venice partnership, Creative Scotland is delighted to announce that Charlotte Prodger has been selected to represent Scotland at the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
Commissioned and curated by Linsey Young with Cove Park, Prodger’s presentation will be a major solo exhibition of new work opening on 11 May 2019 and running until 24 November 2019.
Charlotte Prodger works with moving image, sculpture, writing and performance. The commission for Scotland + Venice will provide her with the opportunity to produce a new single channel video work that will build on her sustained exploration of “queer wilderness”. Prodger will develop this new work over a series of research and production residencies at Cove Park, one of Scotland’s foremost residency centres and will be supported by the artist’s production consultant Mason Leaver-Yap. On its return to Scotland the work will tour the Highlands and Islands while Dutch arts organisation If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part of Your Revolution, who are supporting the production of the work, will lead on a subsequent international tour.
