13th - 22nd May 2022 Free - Drop-in - no ticket required Tramway View map

A moving image and sound installation

PREVIEW Thursday 12 May, 7 to 9pm

Told in two parts - from the perspective of rocks, healing springs, radio, air and emptiness - this work re-imagines an island’s environment and the traces of its former inhabitants.  

Stone monoliths and steel antennas bookend 5 millennia of monument erection, communion and the appeasing and harnessing of invisible forces necessary for survival, as well as for metaphysical ends.

Standstill of the Moon in the North is a glacial fiction and an impressionistic vision of the liminal places of perception.
