Andrew Black is an artist and filmmaker based in Scotland. His work explores hidden and obscured stories found within the British landscape, creating portraits of places with which he has a biographical attachment. Black’s films look at how the infrastructures and ideologies of capitalism, militarism and nationalism have shaped the land and its inhabitants. Often working closely with local people, his work shows ways that communities can imagine and create alternative and oppositional ways of being.
He was the 2021 recipient of the Margaret Tait Award, and his commissioned film On Clogger Lane premiered at Glasgow Film Theatre in February 2023, was exhibited at The Tetley, Leeds, and will show at LUX, London in 2024. His work has shown at CCA Glasgow, Dundee Contemporary Arts and Centre Clark, Montreal.
