Isle-land by Gill Russell

19 March – 13 May 2018

The Small Gallery, Aberdeen Royal Infirmary

Gill Russell is an artist interested in places of ‘significance’ and how they resonate in the landscape. She works across a range of forms and media, including installation, audio-visual, mapping, drawing, sculpture and texts. Walking is often key to her exploration. She has created several outdoor sound and light installations set in the remote Highland landscape.

Some of her most recent work is with poet/artist Alec Finlay exploring projects with special areas of interest including poetic interpretation of place names, river systems, ecological mappings and guiding walks. For example ‘Gathering’, a poetic and phot

ographic mapping of the Braemar region inspired by local place names and their meanings, commissioned by Hauser & Wirth.
In 2014, she had a residency with Deveron Arts, Huntly on the ‘Hielan’ Ways’ project, identifying sites or landforms of significance and focusing on paths and the watercourses which define the land. From these explorations, she created a blog ‘lorg-coise‘ and a book of fourteen thematic map-drawings of walking routes with texts.

For ‘Waterlines’, Gill has created large-scale drawings of maps, including waterlines of North East rivers and watershed meeting points, which are shown alongside associated poetry and text.

Gill will be holding an artists talk on Wednesday 11th April 6pm, where she will be discussing the work in the exhibition. The event is free, tickets are available from here.

The artworks in this exhibition can be viewed and bought in the GHAT online shop.
