Avatar (i) - Wendy McMurdo
Avatar (i), 2008 © Wendy McMurdo

As part of GENERATION, photographer and filmmaker Wendy McMurdo is presenting a series of collected works ranging from 1995 to 2012 at Street Level Photoworks until 17 August. In addition to The Skater and film The Loop (made with Paul Holmes in 2009), the exhibition will feature several works not before seen in Scotland as part of a major solo exhibition of collected works that have been curated specifically for GENERATION.

McMurdo focuses on the relationship between technology and identity expressed through the images and ideas of childhood. She looks at the psychological world of children and young people, both as a protected space and, increasingly, as a ground for marketing wars and a prematurely forced adulthood.

Two limited edition Wendy McMurdo prints of the above image have been produced to accompany the exhibition. These can be purchased from the gallery during the run of the show or direct from Wendy’s website.

Digital Play runs at Street Level Photoworks until 17 August. McMurdo will give an artist talk on 9 August to accompany the exhibition. For more details about the exhibition see the Street Level website.
