Isle of Staffa

Artist Ilana Halperin invites a small audience on an evening journey to the Isle of Staffa where she will deliver a new, intimate spoken-word performance at the mouth of Fingal’s Cave. Halperin’s title, “Felt Events”, refers both to the term seismologists use to describe earthquakes and to an early body of work she made in 1998 shortly after moving to Scotland from New York. Standing amongst the resounding columnar basalt, Halperin will draw together geological and daily events in what promises to be a singular experience on this island wonder of the world.

Working with Sea Life Surveys boat trips, Comar brings you this unique opportunity to visit the Isle of Staffa for this one-off event. The boat departs Tobermory Pontoon, Ledaig, at 2pm, for a performance at 5pm on Staffa, returning around 10pm. Limited spaces available, so book early!

Ilana Halperin: Learning To Read Rocks
29 May – 26 July 2014
An Tobar
Tobermory, Isle of Mull

A new exhibition by Glasgow-based artist, Ilana Halperin. Following a series of research visits to the island, Halperin has found herself embarking on a rock hunt of sorts: from the world-renowned Tormore granite quarry near Fionnphort on Mull and a rumoured pier on Manhattan Island, to a stretch of melted rocks in Iona and a geothermal pool, aptly named Bloody Pond Hell. Her journey has resulted in a series of brand new artworks for Comar, exhibited at the gallery at An Tobar, where old and young rock will meet.

As part of Generation, celebrating 25 years of contemporary Scottish art.

Opening night Thurs 29 May, 6pm-8pm.
