Alison Hayes – Island Sound, 27 June – 26 JulyPosted by Jane Matthews on June 16th, 2009 No Comments
Video/sound projections and photographic work capturing natural phenomena of an island landscape
To coincide with the upcoming Festival of Nature, Shetland Arts is privileged to be exhibiting the work of Alison Hayes at Bonhoga, in a show called Island Sound.
Alison Hayes’ work explores the un-manipulated experience of wildness in the natural world. Her video/sound works aim to immerse the viewer into the mesmerising beauty of what lies around them whilst offering up an awareness of the power and danger inherent in the natural order of nature. The essence of these works are real yet raw. Shot at dawn, dusk and night time in remote island locations they remain in their unedited format.
It is essential that the works are viewed in nature’s time, unfolding at a pace which transports the viewer into another realm for them to witness something occurring which is instinctively familiar but outwith our human grasp. Six films will run on loop in the exhibition at Bonhoga while other works will be shown throughout the rest of the building.
