Deer Dancer
by Hanna Tuulikki
Gallery 1

As part of Edinburgh Art Festival.

Deer Dancer is a new cross-artform project by artist, composer, performer Hanna Tuulikki, investigating the mimesis of deer, specifically representations within dance from across cultures. The work examines how the imitation of deer behaviour constructs 'wilderness' as the site for the cultivation of hetero-masculinity in 'gender performance' and how hunting mythologies shape and impact real ecologies. Exploring these interconnections, Deer Dancer is an explicit, contemporary, life-crisis ritual for a damaged planet.

Commissioned by Edinburgh Printmakers, funded by Creative Scotland; research and development supported by Magnetic North Artist’s Attachment, funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Creative Scotland.

Hanna Tullikki will be presenting an exclusive performative lecture on Thursday 8th August, as part of Art Late. Art Late is a special culture crawl organised by Edinburgh Art Festival, with artists’ talks  hands-on workshops and one-off performances. Book your ticket for Art Late here.

A Machine for Making Authenticity
By Alastair Clark, Anupa Gardner, Catherine Hiley, Jessica Crisp and Jodi Le Bigre with independent curator David Gilbert.

Gallery 2

The print technicians at EP usually work with artists to create print editions - as a machine for making authenticity – but here, we showcase their work, and a printmaking machine which will allow visitors to produce an unlimited edition print, designed collaboratively by the artists.
