We are pleased to host Timespan’s touring exhibition ‘Out of Place’ featuring works by internationally renowned Scotland based artists Corin Sworn, Graham Fagen and Dalziel+Scullion.In 2011 and 2012, each artist was invited to spend time working at Timespan, creating new work in response to the unique environment and landscape of Helmsdale and Sutherland. Out of Place recontextualises these three pieces of film and video work and asks how an artist makes work in a new environment, how that work is a response to the area it was made in, and how that work can then be shown elsewhere and after? It has toured Skriduklaustur, East Iceland, Caithness Horizons, Thurso, The Ceilidh Place, Ullapool and finally here at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
The exhibition launches at 7:30pm on Friday 17th January with a special screening and discussion centred on the gaze of the artist : a discussion about fable, song and landscape chaired by Uist based artist Sophie Morrish. The event is free with refreshments provided.
