Presentations and Workshops
Artists Helle Bjerregaard, Jane Brucker, Catharina Golebowskie, Petra Vergunst, Jack Vickridge and Harriette Yarrington joined us for the Darkness and Isolation Residency, which ran from January to February this year.
While Mars might seem literally light years away from us, Aberdeenshire is actually home to the only known source of Macaulayite in the world. Macaulayte is rich in iron, with a distinctive red colour, and is being studied by NASA as the most closely related to mineral to those on Mars found on earth. Inspired by the call out for Mars Big Brother, Catharina shows us her new space pod, fashion wear and accessories.
Harriette spent six weeks working meticulously on recreating the skulls of a number of species facing extinction, including the Scottish wildcat and Capercaille black grouse, to be cast into bronze in the SSW foundry.
