Exhibition open: study for a garden, Abbas Akhavan
Mount Stuart Trust has been delighted to welcome Abbas Akhavan to Mount Stuart in 2022. Abbas addresses social, economic and political concerns through the lens of ecology, animal and plant life. His practice of on-site research saw him spending time on Bute throughout the first months of 2022. This has resulted in the creation of site specific works using natural and ancient materials from the island. These new works interrogate the history of Mount Stuart and its landscape. The commission will introduce audiences in Scotland to Abbas Akhavan’s work for the first time, his international reputation having been formed in Canada, Germany, USA, UAE, Colombia and Turkey.
