'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.
