Remix Series ‘Untitled 2’

Remix Untitled 2 has two parts. In the first part of the film, the audio from an Indian wedding video found on Youtube and puts it with a video of a Scottish Ceilidh dance class. This is followed by the video of the Indian wedding with the sound track from a scene in Scottish film “I Know Where I’m Going” where the village is at a Ceilidh for a local wedding.

The Remix Series uses moving image footage from Scottish films that emulate Scottish identity and mix their narrative with material from other countries that have experienced colonisation such as Somalia, Ivory Coast and Sudan. The series came from conversations with refugees and asylum seekers while in residence with Multistory.

Multi-story is based in the Red Road housing estate, Glasgow. Part of Street Level Photoworks collaborative art programme, it was established for residents to take part in creative activity alongside artists. Using traditional and contemporary art Multi-story explores current issues of regeneration, cultural identity and new communities as well as residents wider concerns.
