Some comments from visitors to 'Exposure' on the isle of Lewis in July 2021

This 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 between photographer, musician and sound artist Giles Perring and filmmaker and painter Andy Metcalf, Exposure harnesses 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’.
