Project Artist Announced

We are delighted to announce the appointment of an artist-in-residence to the project, Anne Bevan.

Anne is a visual artist, researcher and Curriculum Leader for Art & Design at Orkney College UHI. Her artwork combines sculpture with photography, video, sound and text, and she often works collaboratively with people from other disciplines. Common themes involve landscape and the environment, in particular water, the sea and the littoral zone. Recent projects have focused on marine biology, wave and tidal energy and coastal change, working with scientists at the University of Edinburgh, the International Centre for Island Technology (Heriott Watt University) and archaeologists at Orkney College UHI.

Anne exhibits her work nationally and internationally, this includes work in Germany, Japan, Sweden, Poland, USA and solo exhibitions at the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh; the Hunterian Museum, Glasgow; the Pier Art Centre, Orkney; Taigh Chearsabhagh, North Uist and with Shetland Arts. Works in public spaces include Moon Pool, a sculpture in Tyrebagger Forrest, Aberdeenshire, and Source, a site-specific sculpture in Stromness harbour. Publications include collaborations with the writer Janice Galloway: Pipelines (Fruitmarket Gallery 2001) and Rosengarten (Platform Projects 2004) and a two volume book with artist Andrea Roe: Things Unspoken – Things Unseen (Pier Arts Centre 2013) with newly commissioned texts from writers Janice Galloway, Alan Spence, Robert Alan Jamieson and marine scientist Professor Kate Darling.

Anne will undertake collaborative work with the Research Team, generating a creative response to the data generated by the field work. The resulting creative output will support the dissemination of the research to academic and non-academic audiences and provide new ways of making deep time visible.
