‘The days never seem the same’ the next exhibition at the Northlight Gallery , Stromness brings together the work of Gunnie Moberg (1941-2007) and Margaret Tait (1918-99).
Moberg worked primarily with photography and Tait became an influential filmmaker, poet and writer. Both artists connected with the places, people and landscapes of Orkney in their work.
The exhibition presents a small selection of work from an exhibition held at Stills, Edinburgh (27 July – 28 October 2018).
As part of the exhibition, Looking In, Looking Out will feature a selection of Tait’s silent films displayed in the gallery’s window, 6–7pm on selected dates.
The exhibition coincides with Film Focus Festival, taking place across Orkney, 1–24 November. Orkney’s Second Film Festival Running Throughout November
This presentation is part of a wider series of screenings and events marking the centenary of Tait’s birth, coordinated by LUX Scotland, the University of Stirling, and the Pier Arts Centre. The exhibition organisers are particularly grateful for the support of Orkney Library and Archive for the loan of materials from Tait’s and Moberg’s archive, as well as the families of Gunnie Moberg and Margaret Tait.
