To have it described in so many different ways, it makes it, it brings it to life.

Linger – Documentary from Artlink on Vimeo.

Linger was created and performed by artist Juliana Capes and poet Ken Cockburn to evocatively describe the Scottish National Portrait Gallery’s Great Hall, providing access and new perspectives on the space. This film with extracts of the performance shares Artlink’s process as well as responses from visually impaired people about the performance and access to the arts more widely.

Just because you can’t see doesn’t mean you are not interested in visual art.

The film is an example of Artlink’s work bringing artists and audiences together to develop innovative, accessible projects. We are planning more projects and performances, please get in touch if you would like to get involved or if you would like more information.
