Exhibition: 1745

Art Gallery of Guelph Guelph, Ontario

Film ou vidéo, Patrimoine — Autre

Complementing the exhibition Critical Mass, 1745 is a new short video installation by Glasgow-based artists, writers, and actors Morayo and Moyo Akandé – London-born daughters of Nigerian immigrants. Developed in collaboration with filmmaker Gordon Napier, the film illuminates the hidden history of slavery in Scotland, referring to the tumultuous year of the Jacobite rising of 1745 to recount the story of two Nigerian-born sisters who were enslaved in the Caribbean and brought to Scotland. In this work, two sisters try to retake their freedom in a foreign and hostile land, attempting to elude their master in the perilous Scottish Highlands. The film offers a harsh reminder of the isolation and vulnerability of Black bodies in a colonial terrain.
