Anne-Marie Copestake lives in Glasgow. Working with moving images, audio, text, print, photography, performance and sculpture, recent works foregrounding unsung legacies have focused on vivid portraits of a kind. With an emphasis on considering conditions that have surrounded choices or a lack of choices, a tangible passion of collectivity in the everyday, these works explore environments and landscapes that may have contributed essentially to these conditions. Copestake often works collaboratively, most recently with musician Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh.
