Older female relatives celebrated in new photowork for International Women’s Day.
The photo collective ‘Not Finished Article’ has chosen to celebrate International Women’s Day by creating a new work especially for the Porty Light Box. Not Finished Article’s work ‘Exquisite…#MakeItHappen’ is a homage to significant older female members in the family.
Comprising of three full-length portraits of personal significance to three members of the collective, and linked together by a purple figure of ‘8’ to mark the date, NFA hope the Portobello community will do their own remembering, celebrating of Grandmothers and Great Aunties on International Women’s day.
Not Finished Article (NFA) is a collective of four established women artists based in Scotland: Nicky Bird, Alicia Bruce, Caroline Douglas and Sylwia Kowalczyk. As a collective they have distinct, yet complementary practices which together incorporate photography, moving image, the found photograph and the museum collection. Portraiture and community collaboration also play a distinctive role. NFA meet regularly to share work in progress, attend events such as the Recontres Arles photography festival www.rencontres-arles.com, and have more recently contributed collective works to 2014 Frames projections at CCA, GI Festival and Street Level Photoworks.
