A Message from the Curator

As we are now slowly emerging from lockdown and travel distancing are being eased, I'd like to invite you to book a viewing at Baile na Cille Church.

You are welcome to come alone, with your partner, and family members or friends. But, the total group size must be no more than six people. Appointments are scheduled to last upto 1 hour, so that you and your party can enjoy the artwork on display safely and at your leisure.

There will be at least one artist or member of staff on hand to answer any questions you may have.

If for any reason, you need to cancel your booking, do let us know so we can offer your slot to another visitor.

Kind Regards

Andy

Curator and Sculptor

What's on Display

EXPOSURE is a collaboration between musician, sound artist and photographer Giles Perring and filmmaker and painter Andy Metcalf, carried out, principally, on the Isle of Jura.

This work explores the brute nature of landscape, the vulnerability of human expression and the critical importance of sociality in shaping our creations. Born on the wild and beautiful Isle of Jura through a creative dialogue between photographer, musician and sound artist Giles Perring and filmmaker and painter Andy Metcalf, Exposure harnesses video, painting, 35mm and medium format photography, text, sound installation and performance in order to depict the many facets of the uneasy experience of a human relationship with a harsh island environment – be that emotional, existential, ecological, or elemental.

This work brings together two perspectives – the familiar with the ‘outside eye’. The Isle of Jura, for Metcalf, is far-flung, whereas for Perring it is the centre of his world, his normality, his everyday. The dialogue sparked by these two creative responses begs questions around what defines our sense of ‘remote’.

This exhibit features the sounds of the newly launched, World Organ – an outside sound sculpture created by Giles Perring, located on the Isle of Jura. It is built to listen to, respond to and shape the sound of the landscape that surrounds it. The result is a generative piece of music and which Giles has streamed live, 24/7, since he launched this project in August 2020.

Work will be available for purchase

Social Distancing Details

Of course, the safety of our visitors and artists remains our highest priority so please arrive promptly for your appointment and wait in the carpark where you will be greeted by the curator or one of the artists.

It is important that you arrive on time so as to avoid clashing with those already in or in the process of leaving the gallery.

Once inside, you will be free to enjoy looking around the gallery at your leisure. A member of staff will be on hand should you need assistance, but largely you'll be able to browse in your own time.

--------------------------------

Extra Measures

We will be providing hand-sanitiser in the entrance to the gallery, but please also consider using your own hand santiser on arrival.

We may also ask you to provide contact details if you have not already provided details via the booking system.

Please note that the building is at an early stage of renovation and we ask that you be aware of its condition and tread carefully when exploring the upper galleries.

There are no toilet or washroom facilities.

To reduce the risk of transmission we ask that you do not touch any of the sculptures or artworks on display, unless you are considering making a purchase.

Please let us know if you have touched the artwork when you depart so that we can prepare it for the next visitors.

To give us time to deep clean between appointments, we are limiting each visit to 60 minutes so we would appreciate your understanding when your allocated time is up.

And of course while we are asking visitors to arrive and leave on time you are of course welcome to leave any time before the end of your allocated time slot.

Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to welcoming you to Baile na Cille art gallery.
