Annie Crabtree is an artist who lives and works in Glasgow. Crabtree makes moving image work, drawing upon feminist theory to inform both concept and method. Crabtree studied at The Glasgow School of Art with an international exchange at San Francisco Art Institute, California. She has a masters of research in human geography from the University of Glasgow. Crabtree situates her practice in feminist geopolitics, the embodiment of politics within everyday lives, and emotional geographies, the understanding of emotion in terms of social and spatial articulation. Crabtree employs the aesthetics of video diary, educational video and documentary, layering imagery with voice-overs generated from conversations and borrowed texts.
