Annie Lord (b.1986) is a visual artist, storyteller and teacher based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Her practice is increasingly concerned with the historical long-view: the persistence of continuities, and locally-specific traditions in an age characterised by pervasive, borderless technology. Storytelling allows an exploration of place, examining both geographic and cultural histories as well as present day realities. The importance of materials to a specific location presents itself both through the stories and in physical objects found and made by the artist.
Annie Lord explores the history of the site and the resonances of history upon a place in [a] mesmerising short monologue
A wonderfully tight piece of writing...that allows the imagination to fly with her to different places and tell us something about the reality, or not, of where we are in the world...site-specific storytelling of the very highest order.
A fascinating piece of solo story-telling.
