How did people made journeys across and between islands? What routes did they take and what methods of transport and communication were used?
Celtic Neighbours exchange project
The Land and Water project began in September 2009 when Drury and Andy Mackinnon (Taigh Chearsabhagh’s curator and filmmaker) made a two day trans-Uist journey by canadian canoe across the island, from the south-west coast to Lochmaddy on the north-east coast.
In 2009, Taigh Chearsabhagh invited Fred Schley to come to the Outer Hebrides for a short residency to enable him to create the body of work in this exhibition.
Hebridean Pieces presents an unpopulated landscape in which only what is discarded remains. The exhibition presents an installation of photographs and found ceramic.
Taobh an Iar is a retrospective exhibition of the exceptional creativity of the late Donald Ferguson.
An exhibition exploring the archaeology and recent history of the fascinating Hebridean tidal island of Vallay, North Uist.
The title of this exhibition, The Hover Fields, refers to the indefinable connections between emotions, knowledge, memory and reality of landscape.
Ullapool-based artist, Andrew J Ward, brings his Bardic Voyage project to Taigh Chearsabhagh.
“My recent work explores themes of charting, marking and signaling in relation to the landscape and how we move within it. The Hebrides, Uist in particular, have strongly influenced my work offering a unique contrast and closeness in proximity between land and sea.”
Andy Goldsworthy creates sculptures in the landscape, using nature as the raw material and subject of his work. A National Touring exhibition from the Hayward Gallery brings together a series of 15 colour photographs of these works, made between 1977 and 1979. Drawn from the Arts Council Collection, the exhibition comes to Lochmaddy in June as part of an extensive UK tour.
The Fragility of Flight highlights the environmental links between suspected declining bird populations in the Uists and climate change in a project combining ornithology and origami.
MacAlister’s new body of work investigates how language defines a culture. Making Gaelic and Scots references from significant writers such as Sorley MacLean, Burns and MacDiarmid.
