Beyond Tradition

North Lands Collection Gaby Kienle

I recently made a film for the Beyond Tradition exhibition of glass art at Caithness Horizons in Thurso. The exhibition curated by Michael Bullen showed pieces associated with North Lands Creative Glass, the Scottish centre of Excellence for glass art, and these pieces were displayed around the museum’s permanent exhibits, inhabiting the museum spaces in much the same way that artefacts of the county’s history dwell harmoniously in and with the landscape, an environment mostly unspoilt by modernity and untainted by the homogenising processes of the heritage industry .

Here is the film.
