A number of wooden crates with items inside.


EBBE+FLOW is an exchange exhibition; touring in its own wooden chest filled with artworks and images connecting Norway and Scotland. It features work from nine artists – Marit Tunestveit Dyre, Rhona Fleming, Sarah Jost, David Lemm, Jon Macleod, Randi Annie Strand, Calum Wallis and co-curators David Faithfull and Imi Maufe.

It stems from time spent by the artists on two (w)ORD residencies together, on Mull in 2018, and at Tjuvika in Gulen, Norway in 2019. The exhibition captures, in its form and configuration, the essence of the drifting cultural and nautical exchanges between two lands across the North Sea, both historically and today; the ebb and flow of tides, people and objects between Norway and Scotland, following the weather and the tidal streams, back and forth, from east to west and from west to east. EBBE+FLOW is a project initiated with the support of Bergen Ateliergruppe and the SSA.

Join us for the opening preview of EBBE+FLOW in Taigh Chearsabhagh on Friday 20th January, from 7pm.  All are welcome.

David Faithfull will be joining us for a conversation about the exchange along with some of the Norwegian artists via Zoom. We will be hosting this as a hybrid online/in-person chat using a Meeting Owl starting at 7.30pm. If you would like to join us remotely, please book a free ticket so we can email the Zoom link out to you.

The exhibition is free and open to all from 10 am – 4 pm, Monday to Saturday, in Gallery 1 at Taigh Chearsabhagh.  If you would like to support our continued programming and enable us to keep offering free events, please consider making a donation to Taigh Chearsabhagh.
