EDINBURGH.- For her first solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK, Ângela Ferreira presents a new commission inspired by the legacy of Scots explorer David Livingstone's life and work, and the relationship between Africa and Europe.

Born in 1958 in Maputo, Mozambique, Ângela Ferreira grew up in South Africa and now lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. Although considered a sculptor, photography and film have become an integral part of Ferreira's research and production processes since the early 1990s. By presenting sculptures alongside the reference images which inform them, Ferreira enables the viewer to divine their own meaning from within the two realms.

Curated by Filipa Oliveira, the exhibition contains the works Mount Mabu 2013 and Ângela's renowned project Political Cameras (For Mozambique series) 2011, and is supported by The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, UK Branch and The Henry Moore Foundation.

Ângela Ferreira was born in Maputo, Mozambique, 1958, and shares her life between South Africa and Portugal A natural easiness on negotiating issues between cultures became the background of her life. Since early 1990's Ângela Ferreira works have paid special attention to the urbanistic processes involved in everyday life of people and the way different cultural orders overlap in it. The effective sculptoric base of the work allows her to focus on some structures related to architectural details and grasp a conflict between its use and the ideological values that they bring.

As Scotland's Centre for Photography, Stills provides a unique range of expertise, facilities and services which explore the medium of Photography, contemporary visual arts practice and society. Priorities are to develop more opportunities for people to learn about and work with photography in Scotland.
