CEÀRN LÈIRSINN: ANGLE OF VISION BY SAOIRSE HIGGINS
Exhibition opening: Sat 30 Sept, 5pm
Exhibition run: 2 Oct – 25 Nov
In the summer of 2019, Saoirse Higgins undertook a placement as Embedded Artist with Scottish Government, joining a consultation team that visited 40 of Scotland’s 93 inhabited islands – from Shetland to the Outer Hebrides, gathering the views of islanders in order to develop Scotland’s first National Islands Plan.
This exhibition showcases her on-going research into the anthropocene in relation to islands and islanders together with her commissioned work from the embedded artist placement responding to the consultation process from her particular angle as an artist.
Taking its title from a poem by Orcadian poet Robert Rendall (1898–1967), the exhibition focuses on the micro macro viewpoints between islanders, islands and further afield looking at our position in the midst of a global world of change.
