Four artists living on the island of North Uist bring their work to Shoreditch.
North Uist is one of the islands in the remote Outer Hebridean archipelago. It’s dominated by water – both by the surrounding seas and a myriad of freshwater lochs – and wide open skies. It’s very varied topographically, with an ancient, rocky, peat and heather clad interior and a fertile green rim around the coasts, fringed with sandy beaches.
The island lies in the path of Atlantic low pressure systems and is a place of dynamic weather and wind.
It’s both a challenging and rewarding place to live. Our exhibition brings evidence of this to the very contrasting environment of London, demonstrated by four artists inspired by the same place, but using very different and engaging approaches to express it.
