Toradh ar Saothrach | Fruits of our Labour is produced by a group of artists from Craigard Day Centre in Lochmaddy. The exhibition is the second outcome of our long-term project on crofting (more here and here). This year’s work is an animated film and framed collages, that each artist has made from work produced at a short course at Lews Castle College at Taigh Chearsabhagh, in collaboration with UistFilm. There is also an accompanying print bin with mounted prints.
Both the animated film and the print and collage pieces are abstracted developments from our research into crofting, and traditional island skills. We have visited working crofts, interviewed crofters and have been inspired by their words and experiences. We were also lent artefacts from the Museum nan Eilean collection, which we drew and photographed, and then developed images using various media.
