Calvin Z. Laing is a performance artist, living and working in Scotland. In this film he speaks to us about the immediacy of performance, blurring fact and fiction through scripts, and the shared human experience of feeling awkward. The performance 'Calvin & Back At The Gym' was devised for the film, and performed in North Edinburgh in January, 2022. ART & is a new series of films from the National Galleries of Scotland – using contemporary art to explore wider social, political, and cultural themes. Created in collaboration with artists, these films will examine the connections between contemporary art and the world it’s made in.
