Margaret Mitchell: In This Place
Lillie Art Gallery, 07 Oct - 02 Nov
Originally shown at Street Level as part of Ambit: Photographies from Scotland, this expanded version of In This Place looks at family and home, connections and place, touching on issues of social and personal inertia within our environment.
The work was highly viewed when seen in Ambit, with several online features on the work, including Photomonitor. Margaret was featured as artist of month in Firecracker, who said of the work: 'Margaret’s long term documentation of her sister's family traces the loves and losses of her nieces and nephew, and their subsequent families, over 20 years. It's a fascinating and moving personal study but also provides a broader comment about Scotland's economy and social mobility. Her photographs present the relatable qualities found in most families - tenderness, dysfunction, survival and love, but also provide a backdrop to Scotland and its current economic structure.'
