Chicago-based artist Deborah Stratman brings her latest work to Glasgow. The Illinois Parables is an hour-long experimental documentary, spanning over one thousand years of history in the Midwestern state, and considering the role of faith and belief in forming ideologies and American identity. Shot in glorious 16mm, the film captures the history of violence, resistance and exodus inscribed in an apparently unremarkable landscape. The Illinois Parables screens alongside Deborah’s previous work Hacked Circuit (2014), and will be followed by an extended conversation between Deborah and Glasgow-based artist Stina Wirfelt.
