Jini Rawlings: WAVEING

Aberdeen Maritime Museum

From 26 May - 1 September 2012

Jini Rawlings has produced new work based on the log of Aberdeen trawl skipper Alfred Craig and a 19th century journal by Elizabeth Jane Oswald. 'Bound for Iceland' combines Craig’s personal testimony from his posting to wartime Iceland with film footage from the artist's voyage to Iceland. Using non-synchronous loops to reflect the slippage of memory, these works create a continuously changing reading of image and text that explores the experience of the outsider, cultural connectedness and otherness. The gesture of the wave, welcoming or bidding farewell, suggests a memory of home. WAVE/ING is supported by Arts Council England.
