Exhibition by ASN graduate Patrick Lydon in collaboration with Suhee Kang,with fellow Robert Callender Residency artist, Nishiko from The Hague, Netherlands.
Suhee and Patrick are showing “Wisdom from the Field,” a new project of handmade paper and prose; ideas culled from our past five years of research and study on natural farming in Japan, Korea, Scotland, and the United States during the making of our film “Final Straw: Food, Earth, Happiness.” The film is also being shown in-situ for the duration of the exhibition.
Nishiko is showing works related to her Repairing Earthquake Project which deals with her attempts to find and repair objects from the disaster area of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake in 2011. The works on display in this exhibition are broken works made by Valerie Dempsey & Ronald Boer and repaired by Nishiko.
The exhibition “Tool, Mind, Earth” runs from 1-14th November 2016 at Fettes Gallery, Edinburgh, UK. It is curated by Jake Bee in collaboration with Elizabeth Ogilvie and the Robert Callendar International Residency for Young Artists.
