Anne-Marie Copestake is an artist based in Glasgow, who works with moving image, audio,performance, print and sculpture. Recent moving image pieces have focused on portraits of a kind, foregrounding a number of women and aspects of their lives. The emphasis has been to consider conditions that have surrounded choices, or a lack of choices, made by the women, and to explore the landscapes and environments that may have contributed essentially to these conditions.

Recent exhibitions and screenings include: Stalking the Image: Margaret Tait and Her Legacy, Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow; Margaret Tait film/poems, The Pier Arts Centre, Orkney; Projections 2: A Blemished Code, Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne; Soft Fiction/And Under That, Irish Film Institute, Dublin; Prantik Basu, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Anne-Marie Copestake, Old Hairdressers for Glasgow International, Glasgow (2018); Experimenta, BFI London Film Festival; New Edition, with Poster Club, Edinburgh Printmakers, Edinburgh, (2017); >>FFWD: Artists’ Moving Image from Scotland, Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum, Shanghai, as part of CURRENT, Contemporary Art From Scotland, Phase Two, Cooper Gallery, Dundee; Autumn Screening, Inverleith House, Edinburgh; Ripples on the Pond, Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow (2015).
