ACTS OF TRUST
Stephen | Morrison propose a continuing voyage through traditional stories linked to offlying islands.
The two artists won a British Award for Storytelling Excellence for their collaborative project "Acts of Trust" which presents responses to 3 stories as a group of prints using the photo-gravure process.
They are planning to extend the range of the work by making a further series of prints to present an image and a text from the three voyages captured in the above photographs"
Sula Sgeir - the story of the two brothers, a tradition collected by Ian and developed from the experience of navigating its setting.
Stac Skerry - a selkie tradition
Fair Isle - the story of Lucky Minnie - a traditional tale of an ogre
a proposal to explore:
the information contained in the photograph includes the specific time of the experience -
the text is made, some years later, from what is captured in the image -
but they are lit by a colour identified in retrospect
