Produced as part of Artists and Archives: Artists Moving Image commissions at the BBC.

Taking a 1961 BBC documentary about Barbara Hepworth as its starting point, Weight explores how televised depictions of creativity constructed our understanding of artistic production and other forms of labour. Weight re-imagines the value systems that this documentary is predicated upon and proposes an alternative vision.

Supported by LUX, BBC Scotland and Creative Scotland.
