Iman Tajik's work is anchored in a strong social interest and demonstrates an effort to make work that is a critical tool connected to international movements for social change. His exhibition at Stills will include his new series of performative photographs The Dreamers. These are set in a rural Scottish landscape with a direct connection to the historic Highland Clearances as well as contemporary disputes over land ownership. He explores the notion of the border and questioning the value and role of nationality in a time of emergency.
The Dreamers series was made during Tajik’s residency at Deveron Arts, Huntly as part of his Bordered Miles project.
