Rolls and Shutters
Stina Wirfelt

The video takes as its starting point the photographic archives of the Thistle Foundation and Craigmillar Festival Society. Rather than examining the facts and details of the photographs held in the archives, the narrator uses them to recall her own memories of making black and white photographs as a teenager. The tendency to relate to the photographer rather than the subjects in the photographs leads her to question her own position of privilege in image making and beyond.

About the artist

Stina Wirfelt

Stina Wirfelt is an artist based in Scotland and Sweden. Her work identifies and constructs points where different stories meet and merge. These concurrent narratives can be coincidental or scripted, or both. An underlying theme is the mind’s constant search for “meaning” and how knowledge is made and constructed. Since graduating with an MFA from Malmö Art Academy in 2007 she has participated in LUX Associate Artist Program in London.
