The story of On Sonorous Seas began with a whale carcass that came ashore in August 2018 at Tràigh an t-Suidhe/Strand of the Seat, at the north end of the Isle of Iona, where artist Mhairi Killin lives.
Finding out why the whale had died led the artist on a journey into the tangled overlay of two cryptic environments; the habitats of the military and the habitats of deep diving whales. It took her on a ten-day sea voyage aboard the Hebridean Whale & Dolphin Trust research vessel, The Silurian, during the largest tactically-focussed, NATO-led, military exercise in Europe – Joint Warrior – and immersed her in a pelagic world of sound.
Look out for exhibtions held by Uist Art Association. Their annual winter exhibition will be kicking off and running through December and January.
