Muir is Tìr/Land and Sea is a new An Lanntair residency, loosely inspired by the George Macleod book of the same name. It uses the land and seascapes of the Outer Hebrides as venue and research arena, offering a week at sea exploring the ocean and coastal anchorages of the archipelago and a week on land following mountain trails and discovering the differing environments of the islands. Muir is Tìr also offers a window into the language and culture of the islands through an involved and participatory approach.
Five artists were selected for the residency last summer: Verity Standen, Kirsty Dixon, Mollie Goldstrom, Will Arnold, Amy Leigh Bird. This exhibition is a showcase of the works created in response to it.
This event is part our Summer at ECA programme during the 2018 Edinburgh Art Festival.
