Exhibition talk…

On Tuesday 14 June at 6pm artist Danny Holcroft and art historian John Calcutt discussed the stories behind ‘Lost in Translation’, and exhibition which traces migrant travels through Italy, France, Scotland, Prussia and the USA, from 1880 to today.

The works are the culmination of an on-going research and production residency which Holcroft has undertaken intermittently since 2014. During his residency, he worked from the rural village of Filignano in central Italy, which since the 1860s has become accustomed to migration and the constant departures and arrivals of its inhabitants, many of whom live in Glasgow.

Listening to stories originating from the Filignanesi diaspora on their travels to Paris, Glasgow, London, Brussels, Prussia, St. Petersburg, and Philadelphia, Holcroft found that narratives were often repeated yet never the same, constantly shaped by how the storyteller chose to tell them.
