The INLAND project
Framed by the European project Frontiers in Retreat (FiR) and under a Scottish Sculpture Workshop (SSW) commission, artist Fernando Garcia- Dory applies the INLAND approach he has been developing in different places since 2010 – in this case to the Cabrach, a high moorland with grazing pastures, progressively abandoned, and enclosed by a private Estate.
Over the last two years, Fernando has connected with Rural Development agents working in the area, as well as Cabrach inhabitants and farmers. The project has looked at the content of the recently formulated Land Reform Act of Scotland, with its legal and political implications, in relation to possible applications within the rural community there.
INLAND -Tenant Farmer Exchange Residency 2017
As the project enters its final phase, tenant farmers of the Cabrach and farm cooperative members from Andalusia, Spain have been invited to participate in an exchange residency. From the 1st – 4th of March 2017, farmers of the Cabrach and SSW will host members from the Spanish cooperative who created a landless farm workers union (S.O.C) in the 1980s as part of a campaign to highlight inequalities in a region of huge historical private Estates.
The three day exchange programme includes visits to Cabrach tenant farms and areas of interest, as well as social gatherings and meals. Two public in-conversation and presentation events will also be held. One will be held in the Cabrach with the Cabrach Community Association (CCA – Cabrach) and one in Glasgow with the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA – Glasgow).
