Orcadia & Other Stories is a major exhibition of work by Zoë Walker & Neil Bromwich spanning more than 15 years of production. The exhibition will provide a survey of the artist’s work to date alongside new work created especially for the exhibition in Orkney.
The artist’s interest in archaeology, local mythology and energy production are brought together in new sculptural work reflecting ancient Orcadian culture, as well as more recent island innovations, in creative and revealing ways.
Orkney is leading the way in the development of tidal and wave energy technologies and this activity sits alongside the more traditional industries of farming, fishing, tourism and cultural heritage. This backdrop provides a narrative of change and development that highlights divergent views of the future that feed into the exhibition through the artists’ collaborative and informal approach.
Walker & Bromwich have gained a significant international profile for their work, creating highly original and thought provoking sculptural installations and performances around the world, reflecting on local custom, mythologies and identity to define new ways of being.
