Abstract

'Leviathan:f5’ was created for the 2012 Edinburgh Festival ‘Pilgrimmage’ exhibition in St Triduan’s Chapel with Artists Collective 6°W.

Realised during a 6°W residency on the remote isle of Inch Kenneth off Mull, the concertina book is on one side a 360° panoramic view of the isle, on the other a drawn reliquary of carved artifacts relating to religious whale-bone relics.

The laser-cut cedar - traditional wood of reliquaries - relates to St Tiduana, the Patron Saint of Sight and the artist’s mother going blind during its creation.

Leviathan was originally exhibited unfolded with 6 carved cedar relics, corresponding to specific island walks.
