(w)ORD: EBBE+FLOW, travelling exhibition, The Swan

Research output: Other contribution


Exhibition Dates: 17-27 August 2024
Exhibition Venue: Swan, historic ship sailing from Shetland to Norway.

Join Swan for a creative journey across the North Sea. Accompanied by artists from Scotland & Scandinavia, all using different mediums, you will have the opportunity to take inspiration from your surroundings and time to spend on your practice should you wish – or just enjoy the journey and the culture! Some of your fellow crew are participating in the voyage to escort their exhibition to Gulating, Norway.

Boarding Swan in Lerwick at 10am, your stay will begin with a comprehensive safety briefing including how to work the lines on deck and set the sails as your journey will very much be a participatory experience.

The exhibition travelling with the boat is entitled (w)ORD: EBBE+FLOW and it is on display in Shetland Museum & Archives in July/August 2024. (w)ORD: EBBE+FLOW represents the falling and rising of the tide and references the importance of sea and travel and the spread of language and culture across the North Sea between Norway and Scotland, both historically and today.
