CROSSING ALBA - 2010
Collins gallery, Glasgow - 20th August to 18th September 2010, with catalogue

Gerry Loose, Morven Gregor, Ian Stephen, Emmanuelle Waeckerlé began the crossing of Central Scotland, by the Forth and Clyde canal system then IS and EW departed to make a crossing of the north of Scotland, from Stromness to Stornoway while JL and MG’s rowing was still in progress. Two stories were exchanged at the beginning of the voyage, Limfjord and Falling man, timeless stories, tales of survival, exploring human psychology.
These stories have been retold in a range of different mediums; video works, a series of photogravures, two photographic diptyches and customised male and female garments, both showing an image based on the international signal for “I am restricted in my ability to manoeuvre”.

funded by an Lanntair, Highland Print Studio, UCA Farnham, Collins Gallery.
A feature on the show was published in The Herald and it has also been spotlighted on STV news and BBC Scotland website.
