Voyage of no return

2009, 15 minutes

Art film

Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities and Marcel Broodthaers’ film Un Voyage en Mer du Nord, Voyage of No Return takes the form of a short feature film. Shot on location in Oban, the film deals with the notion of a city and its harbour which only witness departures, and no returns – a particularly poignant subject in this year of Homecoming when it is hoped that many Scottish migrants will choose to revisit their country of origin. Seen through the eyes of a father and son, the piece also considers universal issues of mobility and family ties, which the artist hopes will have resonance with visitors who will experience this multiple-screen video art installation at the artspace.
