Living the Dream: A video presentation by Ann Vance

Living The Dream is a split-screen filmic encounter with Peter Womersley's abandoned and decaying modernist design studio built for Bernat Klein in 1972 in the Scottish Borders. The building remains in private ownership and stands surplus to requirement. In spite of, or because of the decay the structure has developed an aura of timelessness, a stillness that belies its productive past.

This past conjures a collision of art and capitalism, foregrounding ideas around the division of labour, the construction of femininity and the individualism of the artist. I explore the building’s structure within it’s natural site, juxtaposing 70s fashion images and imagining a future without domestication and waged labour.

Registration is now open for a launch event at McChuills Bar, High Street, Glasgow, on 7 June between 18:00 and 21:00.
