Nostalgic Whiplash

Let’s Call it Love,

A screening programme comprising moving image works by women artists from Site Gallery’s past programme, as part of a series of events marking Site’s 40th year.

The works I selected for Nostalgic Whiplash are variously concerning memory, loss, displacement in time and space, and revisiting or remaking the past to slingshot us to the future.

Some works are homages to – or remakes – of previous works, some look back to the past with exuberance, some with melancholia, some project alternate, otherworldly landscapes.
