Title: Scotland + Venice. Alberta Whittle: deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory
Organized by: Scotland + Venice
Curatorial team: Glasgow international
Exhibitor: Alberta Whittle

Scotland + Venice commissioned new works to Alberta Whittle for Scotland’s official collateral event at the 59th Venice Biennale.

“deep dive (pause) uncoiling memory” is an installation of new work by award-winning artist Alberta Whittle. Spanning two rooms in a former boatyard, Whittle has created an environment containing works in tapestry, film and sculpture connected through a shared vocabulary of motifs and ideas. Through her rich symbolism, Whittle encourages us to slow down, in order that we may collectively consider the historical legacies and contemporary expressions of racism, colonialism and migration, and begin to think outside of these damaging frameworks.
