EXPOSURE is a collaboration between musician, sound artist and photographer Giles Perring and film maker and
painter Andy Metcalf, carried out, principally, on the Isle of Jura.
It opens at Dunoon Burgh Hall on 18 June and runs til 18 July.
The work explores the brute nature of landscape, the vulnerability of human expression and the critical importance
of sociality in shaping our creations. Born on the wild and beautiful Isle of Jura through a creative dialogue, Exposure harness-
es video, painting, 35mm and medium format photography, text, sound installation and performance in order to
depict the many facets of the uneasy experience of a human relationship with a harsh island environment – be that
emotional, existential, ecological, or elemental.
This work brings together two perspectives - the familiar with the ‘outside eye’. The Isle of Jura, for Metcalf, is far-
flung, whereas for Perring it is the centre of his world, his normality, his everyday. The dialogue sparked by these two
creative responses begs questions around what defines our sense of ‘remote’.
This exhibition features the sounds of the newly launched, World Organ - an outdoor sound sculpture created by Giles
Perring, located on the Isle of Jura. It is built to listen to, respond to and shape the sound of the landscape that sur-
rounds it. The result is a generative piece of music and which Giles has streamed live, 24/7, since he launched this
project in August 2020.
Produced by Helm Arts, this exciting exhibition will tour across Scotland from Summer 2021.
