Taigh Chearsabhagh Artist in Residence Talk and Film Screening

Taigh Chearsabhagh Artist in Residence Talk and Film Screening

'Sea Change' Artist in Residence at the North Uist centre, Shona Illingworth will deliver an illustrated talk on her practice and present a screening of 'Balnakeil', her 2009 film about landscape, memory and environment.

Shona will also be discussing with the audience her current residency at Taigh Chearsabhagh.

Part of the 'Cape Farewell Sea Change' project, Shona's residency explores the ecological, cultural, social and historical perception and understanding of wind and air - in particular atmospheric pressure and the north Atlantic weather systems which affect the Outer Hebrides and produce some of the most changeable weather in the world.

Shona is currently developing a short film which aims to create an evocative 'interweaving' of the languages of: science; economics; technology; history; culture (both in Gaelic and English); story telling and human experience to capture the illusive and continually changing meaning, quality and tenor of wind and weather - its constantly concentrating and dissipating energies forming the underlying structure of the work.

Shona Illingworth's Talk and Film Screening will begin at 7:30pm at Taigh Chearsabhagh Studios.
