Tako Taal: Compound

Fri 1 September — Sun 17 September 2017

Tako Taal

Compound is an exhibition examining figures of the stranger and an extended family, and traces a personal narrative in a search to embody welcome gestures. It presents two new video works - one filmed at the Gambia Tourism Hospitality Institute - along with documents from a family archive, print and objects. The exhibition borrows its form from a common living arrangement in West Africa.

This exhibition has been supported by Aberdeen City Council Visual Artist Award, Creative Scotland and Hope Scott Trust.

Video work included in the exhibition will be subtitled, and some objects will be placed on the floor. CCA's full accessibility guide can be found here.
