Description

FARAM, 2012. 63 pages.

This is a stunning pocket-size book which was published to accompany an exhibition shown in the An Lanntair Gallery in Stornoway in February and March 2012.
It contains the work of three artists, Ishbel Murray, Anne Campbell and Mairi Morrison, as well as an essay by Catriona Murray. There is also a DVD included, containing a short film called The Glen Road

"ASTAR (distance, journey) explores the concept of journeying through time, to retrace the history of five families who in 1843 left their homes in the Park district of Lewis and settled in the uninhabited Glen Tolsta, Although the glen subsequently became home to a thriving community it virtually disappeared in the period after the second world war, only a few generations later. A search for the origins of the Glen Tolsta community and a wider examination of who we belong to and where we come from was the genesis of this exhibition. The location acts as a fulcrum for the work of the three artists who collaborated on the project and their individual responses reveal the complex interweaving of island family histories."
