I didn’t think it would turn out this way, 2021 programmed by David Dale Gallery at P/////AKT, Amsterdam. The title for this exhibition, programmed by David Dale Gallery as part of an organisational exchange with P/////AKT, is taken from the opening words of Lauren Berlant’s introduction in a special edition of Critical Inquiry from 1998 entitled ‘Intimacy: A Special Issue’. This focus on intimacy as well as desire, togetherness, presence and absence opens reading into the mechanics of each moving image work but also provides a political underpinning to the programme as a whole. To exist as a limited group of objects bundled together, to act as a subjective survey of sorts, a round-up of activity by artists making moving image work in Glasgow in 2021, is an intimate affair.

Aman Sandhu, Anne-Marie Copestake, Clarinda Tse, Margaret Salmon, Mathew Wayne Parkin and Renèe Helèna Browne, with Harriet Rose Morley and Bo Wielders.
