Shetland residency

Shetland residency

In June this year I'll be spending time in Shetland researching the concept of 'belonging': what it means to belong to a place, a person, a country - how it might originate and consequently express itself.

Amongst other places, I'll be looking at the 'Shetland bus' launch slip where many brave souls helped Norwegian refugees to safety when Germany invaded their country. They sailed small craft disuised as fishing boats, across the North Sea under the cover of darkness and the noses of the Germans. An incredible feat. I'll be starting a series of drawings taken from the remnants and memories of that specific area.
