Street Level Glasgow meets aff
Alishia Farnan, Ilisa Stack, Declan Finn Malone
Glasgow’s Street Level Photoworks partners with Berlin’s aff Galerie to present some of the new talents in Glasgow’s photographic art scene whose work speculates on notions of Place and Cultural Identity in relation to nationality, social class, generation, and locality.
Alishia Farnan’s work “Social State” deals with post-industrial town planning looking at some of the social spaces where people who were heavily involved in industry spend their free time. Ilisa Stack’s series “Oot tae Play” focuses on Glasgow children at play, creating a social document around specific post code areas identified as being areas of ‘multiple deprivation’. Declan Finn Malone’s work “I’m not a grafter, but my ancestors were” references the legacies of his family’s working class origins, and his own self-perception in relation to this.
