Imogen Rigden: Lace Weight. 16 January-2 February on Wednesday 16th January 2019

Evacuated on August 29th, 1930, the exhausted population had elected to leave their home island, Hirta, occupied by their forebears for four thousand years. This is of constant relevance as people travel to escape the effects of climate change and conflict.

The artist contemplates how the disintegration of any community affects cultural continuity and the well-being of women. The security of our own networks and the potential pain of isolation are explored through the existence and destruction of
a lace weight shawl.

Careful drawings of feathers speak of versatility, resourcefulness and strength
but also of vulnerability as we navigate hostile environments. Paintings, drawings and sculptural pieces evoke an outward journey of courage, optimism and fearfulness. Unwalkable landscapes continue the theme of travel into an uncertain world
