Sraid nam Marbh: End of the Road – Exhibition with Nomas Projects

This June I was invited to exhibit some work with Nomas Projects in Dundee. This was a brilliant opportunity to show some new work which I have been working on since August last year.

The prints displayed in this exhibition are part of a body of work exploring death, commemoration, ritual and sense of place, instigated by a micro residency on the island of Iona in the West of Scotland. The prints are references to objects and pinhole photographs collected during walks on the island and respond to the themes which prompted the trip. The title “Sraid nam Marbh” refers to the ancient road leading from the harbour to the burial ground where the dead would be carried to their final resting place.
