Volker GerlingFollowing the success of his sold out show at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival, and winner of the Festival's Total Theatre Award for 'Innovation, Experimentation and Playing with Form', Berlin-based artist Volker Gerling comes to Aberdeen to demonstrate his unique visual art form: Portraits in Motion. Volker has reinvented a personalized way of coupling the power of the still image with the adventure of movement, producing unexpected results. In order to obtain his subjects, he has walked over 3,500km around Europe, seeking out interesting people with engaging stories to portray, while spending his nights in a tent. Unusually, he does not take money with him on his months-long photographic journeys, but exhibits his artistic work en route and once a week selects a subject to feature in a ‘flipbook’. The results are often startling and always poignant as he reveals in his captivating presentation, which will be followed by a discussion with Prof. Alan Marcus and an audience Q&A.
